Clinically Speaking – full version available to Bristol medical students

By | November 2, 2015

Clinically Speaking is a collection of films of patients talking frankly and openly about their medical conditions. In addition to the iOS app, we have launched a new website – www.clinicallyspeaking.co.uk – showcasing the entire 20 year collection of patient interview films that can be accessed from a phone, tablet or computer.  As a Bristol medical student, you can access the full library of films for free – create your Clinically Speaking account via the invite email we sent to you.

The material is entirely unrehearsed and the camera handheld so that nuances of communication are captured in detail. Each patient film will include a summary of the case and a link to more information about the condition.

The new Clinically Speaking website features a library of over 300 patient interviews.

The video library:

– covers a wide variety of specialties and will fit with whatever your interests are, along with many more that we don’t see very often and are unlikely to come across in hospital

– gives you the patient perspective about their illness (and associating the illness with a patient’s face will help you to remember details of their case – useful for revision)

– high quality videos and can watch on the go.

Search the library by term or specialty. Each interview includes a case summary.

The site will be useful to you in a variety of ways, and we will be providing access for academy tutors and clinical fellows who may wish to use these videos in your teaching or to help you revise.

We are also looking for students to help us make new films for the site – contact Andy Levy (a.levy@bristol.ac.uk) for more information.
