This is an online e-learning and immersive 360* video resource based around a remote consultation. It was originally developed with shielding/displaced trainees in mind, however this will be a useful resource for anyone consulting remotely. It addresses key skills including communication, using the multidisciplinary team, clinical management and safeguarding, as well as offering the opportunity to 'step inside' the consultation from the patient's perspective!
