NU650 Advanced Health Assessment
Week 6 Discussion
DQ1 Patient Case - HEENT/Neck
The purpose of this discussion is to review assessment techniques, identify subjective and objective information related to a focused system, and introduce clinical reasoning. Please read through the entire discussion instructions and example posts prior to your initial post as you will be building on the responses of your peers.
Report to the virtual clinic and select ONE of the occupied exam rooms. Note that each exam room has its own thread for discussion. Read the chief complaint and review any information already shared by your peers to build on the identified patient case. Identify one additional unique health history or subjective symptom as well as one objective exam finding. Provide scholarly support to discuss the physical assessment technique used to identify the objective finding and compare and contrast characteristics of normal and abnormal findings. Each student will copy and paste the most recent developing case to build upon their initial post. Please do not copy the scholarly support. See Example.
Your initial post should include evidence of review of the course material, websites, and literature through proper citations using APA format.
