‘The best teaching is taught by the patient himself’
Sir William Osler, Regius Professor of Medicine, University of Oxford (1905-1920)
NESC - NHS Education South Central
NESC Primary Care Task Force commissioned Healthtalkonline to produce a collection of teaching resources for use in primary care.
www.healthtalkonline.org is an award-winning website about people’s experiences of health and illness, based at DPHPC (Division of Public Health and Primary Health Care) University of Oxford.
Everyone and anyone preparing for work in primary care – foundation doctors, GP specialty trainees, newly registered GPs, nurses new to primary care, health care assistants and receptionists – can watch these films & presentations and/or use them for teaching. Films are designed to trigger discussion and debate about patients and practice. Watch the films, talk about them, reflect on them and let us know what you think and how we can help you. Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
These packages are introductions to the patient experiences on Healthtalkonline, which can be used as a teaching resource. The first example is:
Will I need an operation? Reactions to the diagnosis of a long-term condition

Catalyst 4 Change
Lord Darzi’s Next Stage Review enabled NESC working groups to identify areas where more teaching resources were needed. Healthtalkonline is currently collaborating with NESC tutors to create three video collections which will help tutors in palliative care and mental health.
These are entitled:
· Talking about death
· Dementia for health professionals in primary care
· Tackling stigma in mental health
Video montages for practice nurse trainers
We are also developing straightforward montages of video clips from Healthtalkonline.
These will cover:
· Introduction to Diabetes Type 2
· Introduction to CHD and Heart Failure
· Introduction to Men’s Health
Our thanks to NESC for funding the development of these films especially Simon Plint, Nick Lyons, Sandy Tinson, Ruth White and Tim Walter, the NESC advisory panel who collaborated with us.
