Julio’s job role requires him to meet and obtain physical health status information before delivering a health service to his clients. Julio has several methods which he uses to obtain information on the health status of his clients and then enters his findings and notes straight into the computer program designed to record health information.
This morning, Julio has met with a female, aged 42, with very fair skin and freckles. She presented in reasonable physical health and as they discussed her health issues, Julio referred to the notes taken from the last appointment. During the process of obtaining information from the client, Julio is shown a small raised, rough area of skin on the top of her ear that was flaky and red. She has also asked Julio about skin cancer and how it develops.
1. Provide an example of how Julio can obtain accurate information about the physical health status of this client while conducting his assessment using:
• Observations (approx. 50-80 words)
• Questioning (approx. 50-80 words)
• A review of documentation (approx. 50-80 words)
