NURS 6512 Assignment (DCE) Health History Assessment

A comprehensive health history is essential to providing quality care for patients across
the lifespan, as it helps to properly identify health risks, diagnose patients, and develop
individualized treatment plans. To effectively collect these heath histories, you must not
only have strong communication skills, but also the ability to quickly establish trust and
confidence with your patients. For this DCE Assignment, you begin building your
communication and assessment skills as you collect a health history from a volunteer
"patient."

In this module, you explore advanced health assessments using a system-
focused approach. Assessments such as skin, hair, and nails as well as head, neck eyes, ears,
nose, and throat (HEENT) help you to begin considering abnormalities as you move forward in
your assessments. You continue the module by assessing the abdomen and gastrointestinal
system and move to other systems—such as heart, lungs, vascular, musculoskeletal,
neurologic—before finishing with other special examinations.
