    Departmental Infographic Needed!

    As part of this excellent summary editorial, you mentioned how important it is to tailor your education to the needs and preferences of the patient. Therapists also have these diverse needs so it would be an excellent resource to have this in a graphical format that could be displayed openly in any department, whether it be in Outpatients or in physiotherapy for example as a visual reminder to clinicians but also visible for patients to interrogate so that they can have an understanding of what is to be expected in their consultation and by creating these expectations, will help to drive forward better, more holistic assessment and care of patients.
