IS YOUR WRITTEN HISTORY FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO INCLUDE THE UNEXPECTED?

Let your patient talk. The patient has lived with the problem for an extended time and has information that can help solve the mystery. Many times I will ask the patient, “If you had the ability to do anything you needed to do, what would you do to fix the problem?” Sometimes I have been surprised by the answer. It is the practitioner’s quest to assimilate this information and put it into a usable format to piece together the puzzle. Allow your history taking to be flexible enough to explore unexpected avenues presented by the patient.

“Thanks so much for your continuing efforts to promote and advance the concept of the relationship based practice.” – Jim Otten

What a great forum for sharing the wisdom we have been privileged to gain from those who came before us. Hearing that wisdom expressed in the language of today is so important. ~ Mary Osborne
