The impact of body image on patient care
1. An awareness of how your patients may be impacted by their body image
2. Understanding the possible challenges to the consent process with altered expectations
3. Be prepared to face into our professional ethics with how we use promotional material
Aims: By exploring the research around body image we will aim to understand the impact this can have on mental and physical health and how this can impact our care of our patients. By exploring the expectations we will consider how promotional material, for example social media can influence patients.
