Tina Jones has definitely helped me broaden my assessment skills.
I learned that the small details count. Listening to Tina about her stress level and sudden change in socioeconomical status from her father's death can be key factors in her health and well being.
With this experience I was allowed to take my time and really focus on the questions I needed to ask. Because I was not restricted on time I was able to perform a more thorough interview with the client and form a bond.
Tina was surprisingly engaging and easy to interact with.
I feel much more confident after my first experience with Tina. I know that after several more sessions, it will make my first experience with a real patient in a patient care setting much more relaxed.
I enjoyed the digital clinical experience with Tina Jones. The experience was very similar to my actual patient care.
It helps me realize all the work that I really need to do. Going into the exam I felt as prepared as I could be but I now see that I was scattered and need to be more organized in my questions.
The digital client allows students to experience what it is to deal with a patient without fear of making a costly mistake.
I actually learned a lot from this activity. I was impressed by the inferences I made. I also realized how much I do not know as well. This really helped me and I took away how to set up my interview questions for example what to ask first and also what is important to ask.
I enjoyed this assignment. Having practice taking a health history helps to reinforce what questions to ask.
I took more time in this application than allowed in the real world. Without this experience, I can only assume my very first encounter with a patient would have been just as long or longer.
It has made me more confident to perform my assessment on video for class. This is a great idea for students because we get so comfortable in our safety zones that we forget some technical stuff.
My experience with Tina Jones has changed my values about my skills and knowledge. From assessing Tina, I am learning to be more organized in my assessment and in taking patient's history.
In class we were taught that the patient drives the interview, and I found this to be very true. When Tina would answer my questions, she often revealed new information that required follow up.
My experience with Tina Jones has made me more confident in my communication skills with patients. I will take away a feeling of accomplishment from this assignment.
