Introducing change is hard ... especially for busy clinicians

Introducing change is always difficult as your current habits and systems are well established ... non-inclusion of new stuff can be an inconvenience.

Initiating new "habits" or systems takes time as you ask questions such as how do we include this important information on our already-crowded assessment page, and/or how do we integrate this information into our clinical management strategies; it requires discussion and resolution.

You also have to decide whether the investment of your time, learning and testing provides a reasonable benefit to the people in your care.

Change isn't easy to recognise as it arrives, but it's impossible to forget once it's here.
