Discussion wk 9 – case study
1. What symptoms or signs of illness have you been experiencing recently? This question would help to identify any potential medical issues that the patient may be facing and allow for a more targeted examination.
2. Are there any existing health conditions or medications that we should be aware of? Having this information upfront can help the healthcare provider determine what tests, if any, are appropriate in order to rule out any possible complications due to pre-existing conditions or drug interactions.
3. Do you have any questions about your diagnosis or treatment plan? This question is important because it gives the patient an opportunity to express their concerns and ask questions so they can better understand their condition and their options for care. By taking the time to answer these questions, healthcare providers can ensure that patients feel confident and informed as they go through their treatment plan.
