Throughout the interview, Xavier’s mother answered the majority of the questions and expressed the difficulties she faces daily while taking care of her son. She also talks about the process of receiving the diagnosis of ASD, as well as a previous diagnosis that was incorrect.

His mother claims that he didn’t outwardly appear Autistic to her because he wasn’t withdrawn. She also claims that

Medical Interviewing Tools Dr. Acosta’s presentation presented the Kleinman’s questions as a tool nurses and physicians can utilize to improve their cultural sensitivity. These open-ended questions attempt to address the patients’ explanatory model of illness.

This model is a new interviewing tool I can utilize in my practice to further my understanding of my patients cultural beliefs related to their health condition.

Background Our facility conducted two patient interviews to articulate a clear vision of the negative and positive encounters, which offered valuable insight on areas of improvement, to enhance the interactions with our healthcare providers. These interviews provided our facility with the ability to identify the negative experiences, which directly correlated to poor communication (feeling rushed) and positive experiences, when the patients were provided with empathy, resources, useful tools and hope. Satisfaction in healthcare provision is progressively being utilized to measure the healthcare facilities performance.

me. There was also lack of privacy lack of confidentiality; as everyone would be able to know all about the patients problems. I wasn't very professional during the interview as I didn't wear the appropriate clothes, I just had casual, every day clothes, and I felt I should have worn something smarter.

So she did a great job of educating the patient which I feel did a lot for her credibility as a healthcare provider. I also feel that the patient was satisfied with his care when he let the clinic and that he will be more compliant in his treatments this
