I went throught this practice question on my study material and concerned because you don't suppose to ask the patients the why word am I correct or wrong ? How would you answer this question ??
You are preparing to implement teaching about a heart healthy diet and activity levels for a client who has had a MI and her husband . The client says , "I don't see why I need any teaching. I don't think I need to change anything right now".Which response is most appropriate ???
1."Do you think your family may want you to make some lifestyle changes ?"
2. " Can you tell me why you don't feel that you need to make any changes?"
3."You are still in the stage of denial , but you will want this information later on.
4. "Even though you don't want to change , it's important that you have this teaching."
