MULTIPLE CHOICE

  1. Which question would be considered a “leading question?”
    1. “Please describe any associated symptoms with your headaches?”
    2. “You don’t get headaches often, do you?”
    3. “What activities affect the severity of your headaches?”
    4. “What times of the day are your headaches the most severe?”
    5. “What worries you most about your headache?”

    ANS: B

  2. Which action would best promote accurate translations as well as confidentiality when the caregiver does not speak the patient’s language?
    1. Ask a person unfamiliar with the patient to translate.
    2. Have a friend of the patient translate.
    3. Ask simple leading questions that the patient may understand.
    4. Use a neighbor as a translator.
    5. Involve the family with the translation.

    ANS: A
    When you do not speak the patient’s language, family members or friends may pose a communication barrier and may have issues of confidentiality; a stranger as an interpreter is less biased.

  3. Periods of silence during the interview can serve important purposes, such as:
    1. allowing the clinician to catch up on documentation.
    2. giving you a clue that you should speed up the interview.
    3. providing time for reflection.
    4. increasing the length of the visit.
    5. promoting a calm environment.

    ANS: C
    Silence is a useful tool during interviews for the purposes of reflection, summoning of courage, and displaying compassion. It is usually a clue for you to go slower and not to push too hard.

  1. A patient becomes restless during the history and says, “I don’t have time for all of this conversation. I’ve got to get back to work.” Your most appropriate response would be to:
    1. stop using open-ended questions and become more direct.
    2. ask another open-ended question and insist on an answer.
    3. ask questions about his anger and move closer to him.
    4. acknowledge his anger and proceed with the history and examination.
    5. ignore his displeasure and become more assertive about getting answers.

    ANS: D
    This is the only answer that resists the tendency for patient manipulation, pursues the information, and confronts the patient’s anger.
