Management of Presenting Problems This is the commonest task carried out in a consultation. An example would be a consultation for an intercurrent infection.
Modification of Help ‑ Seeking Behaviour An example might be to suggest that someone who repeatedly presents within 24 hours of the onset of a sore throat might consider self medication for future episodes
Management of Continuing Problems After managing the presenting problem of the sore throat it can be a good opportunity to ask about ongoing problems such as diabetes or depression.
Opportunistic Health Promotion Every consultation creates an opportunity to ask about and record such information, for example about smoking, weight, cervical smears, immunisation etc.
