Health History Assessment (50 points)

Using the following components of a health history assessment and your textbook for explicit details about each category, complete a health assessment/history on an individual of your choice. The person interviewed must be 18 years of age or older and should NOT be a family member or close friend. The purpose of this restriction is to avoid any tendency to anticipate answers or to influence how the questions are answered. Your goal in choosing an interviewee is to simulate the interaction between you and an individual for whom you would provide care. It is important that you inform the person of your assignment and assure him/her that the information obtained will be kept confidential. Please be sure to avoid the use of any identifiers in preparing the assignment.

  • Demographic data
  • Perception of health
  • Past Medical History(including medications, allergies, and vaccinations/immunizations)
  • Family Medical History
  • Review of Systems
  • Developmental considerations
  • Cultural considerations
  • Psychosocial considerations
  • If you were to perform a physical assessment, which body system would be a top priority for evaluation and why?
  • List two teaching/learning need priorities for this individual (Consider Age, Psychosocial, Cultural, Lifespan concerns)
  • Collaborative resources(Think Community, Family, Groups, Health Care System)

Reflection (40 points)

Reflection is used to intentionally examine our thought processes, actions, and behaviors in order to evaluate outcomes. Provide a written reflection that describes your experience with conducting this Health History. First, reflect on your interaction with the interviewee holistically. Consider the interaction in its entirety:  include the environment, your approach to the individual, time of day, and other features relevant to therapeutic communication and to the interview process (if needed, refer to your text for a description of therapeutic communication and of the interview process).Finally, be sure your reflection addresses each of these questions:

  • How did your interaction compare to what you have learned?
  • What went well?
  • What barriers to communication did you experience?
    • How did you overcome them? What will you do to overcome them in the future?
  • Were there unanticipated challenges to the interview?
  • Was there information you wished you had obtained?
  • How will you alter your approach next time?

Written Communication (10 points)

 Your writing should reflect your synthesis of ideas based on prior knowledge, newly acquired information, and appropriate writing skills. Scoring of your work in written communication is based on proper use of grammar, spelling and how clearly you express your thoughts and reasoning in your writing.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
