In this assessment, you will demonstrate competence in exploring a patient’s physical and mental well-being. To do this, you will complete a comprehensive health assessment
on the virtual patient Carolyn Cross in iHuman Patients.
You will then assess the social and physical determinants of health and how they affect this virtual patient, Carolyn. To do so, you must focus on the social and physical
environments that promote health. These environmental determinants include place of birth, neighborhoods, life, experiences, work environments, recreational activities, and
worship practices. These determinants affect health, daily functions, and quality-of-life risks and outcomes. Resources that can affect access to quality healthcare include safe
and affordable housing, access to education and emerging technologies, public safety, the availability of healthy foods, and local health and emergency services.
The purpose of this task is to reflect on how such outside factors affect Carolyn’s access to quality healthcare.

Comprehensive Health Assessment for Patients and Populations C-350
A. Reflect on the comprehensive health assessment you preformed on the virtual patient Carolyn Cross in iHuman Patients by doing the following:
1. Discuss four evidence-based interview techniques you used to assess Carolyn's social determinants. Include a scholarly source in your discussion.
"Interviewing is both a skill and an art." (Bickley, 2016, p. 65). During my iHuman comprehensive health assessment of Carolyn, I utilized four evidence-based interview techniques. First and foremost, I introduced myself, my role, asked her how she would like to be addressed, explained what to expect and the time frame in which to expect completion of the interview, and finally advised her our interview would be confidential. Once we were settled in a private area, she was comfortable, and I made sure there would be no interruptions, I proceeded to the next interview technique, active listening. I was being present, at the moment, actively listening to her responses. I noted her body language, as well as her verbal responses to my questioning, and encouraged her to expand on her symptoms and circumstances related to any symptoms she may have.
Third, I acknowledged and validated her concerns by letting her know she was heard and helped her realize what she was feeling was normal. I provided empathetic responses and reassured her I would address her problems and concerns.
Lastly, I made sure to summarize her responses to indicate I understood and allowed her to correct anything I may have missed. Followed by, a summarization of our conversation, thus hoping to impress upon her my commitment to our professional relationship.
"High-quality patient-clinician communication has also been shown to improve patient outcomes, decrease symptoms, and improve functional status, reduce litigation, and decrease errors" (Bickley, 2016, p. 65).
* Justify the questions you used to assess each of the five social determinants of Carolyn, and include her responses.
