This three-credit course will critically review and analyze health assessment as a model for the development of diagnostic reasoning skills. A regional approach to physical examination will be introduced and practiced and used to develop critical thinking and clinical decision making skills. The course builds on basic health assessment skills and emphasizes advanced assessment skills, lab work, interpretation, validation, documentation and analysis of assessment findings. A synthesis of the physical, psychosocial, cultural, developmental, occupational, and spiritual assessments will lead to a statement of the wellness/illness status and risk appraisal of the individual. Legal and ethical components of client interaction are included, as well as communication and leadership skills.
