So far I have learnt:
To conduct symptom analysis: PQRST provokes/palliates, quality/quantity, region/radiates, severity and timing if problems are found after doing the ROS (review of systems).
For assessment: FANCAPES - fluid intake, aeration, nutrition, communication, activity, pain, elimination, socialization. Also COLDSPA - character, onset, location, duration, severity, pattern and associated symptoms.
Phases of the nursing process, AD PIE - assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, evaluation.
Physical examination techniques: I PP (double P) AO - inspection, palpation, percussion, auscultation & olfaction to thoroughly examine patient.
Edit: The general survey (study of the whole person/patient) SOME TEAMS - Symmetry, Old, Mentation, Expression, Trunk, Extremities, Appearance, Movement & Speech.
