About Choose Health

In this activity, you'll meet people with three conditions that shape - but don't have to rule their lives.

You'll have the opportunity to explore these conditions from a number of perspectives...

What would your advice be as a friend or carer?

What choices would you make as an 'expert' patient?

If you were in the role of a medical practitioner, how would you guide someone?

Choose a condition, choose a role to play - and then follow through the stories.

At the end, you'll get feedback telling you how you did.

Some choices might be easier than others - and some you face might have no soft option.
