Hi everyone... I am looking for the exact interview questions for the health history of Tina Jones shadow health. Can someone help? Please!

In what context are you asking? Are you faculty evaluating whether to purchase the product? If so, the company allows you to schedule faculty demos. Are you a student? If so, you need to utilize the resources provided in your class.

Like what kind of questions that should be asked for health history.

So you're a student. Did you go over health assessment in class?

It's an online class. I went through the books but still confusing as to what exact questions should be asked for health history.

So, basically, you're asking us to do your work for you?

No, we can't tell you the answers but you need to think what you could possibly ask that will allow you to uncover the underlying issue.

Here's what I did. I sat down and made lists for every body system. For example, if the patient comes in short of breath I'd write appropriate questions under each system. For example, under Resp I'd ask things like "do you smoke?", "are you more short of breath on exertion?" and under GI I'd ask "do you get more SOB after eating certain foods?" (could be related to food allergy) and under CV I'd ask "do you get more SOB when lying down?" (could be related to heart failure). You have to tailor the questions to each system. I wrote pages and pages of questions to refer to. Do this before you attempt to do the actual assignment so that you're prepared. Shadow Health will grade you on what you ask and will deduct points for what you omitted. Try to think of all the questions you can related to the presenting problem and what kind of problems they might experience in each system. Hope that helps.

Gah, Ms. Tina Jones and her darn diabetes... I don't envy you.

From what I remember, it's basic health assessment r/t the system you're working on (what Rocknurse said). It's lengthy and can be time consuming; however, pretty basic.

I had it last semester and it is SO time consuming. I used the textbook we were working with which tended to highlight kind of a clinical simulation in each chapter (ie if it was respiratory they might highlight a patient with a cough and go through what sort of questions you might ask and what might the answers indicate. I found that very helpful, so if you have a textbook you might be able to find something like that. Figure out what your base score needs to be as required by your school and where most of your points will come in and make sure you "hit" those. And believe me.. it gets faster as the semester goes along. There is a definite learning curve. Good luck!

Another tip! If you can download chrome, you can use the voice activated questioning which is a LOT faster! Then, the program will often prompt you with a similar question if yours wasn't spot on and in that case, you just have to click it.. Remember to spend most of your time on the system that the course is highlighting that week (ie, don't worry as much about the history of that cut on the foot when you're doing cardiac or whatever) but tries those tips and also.. it does get faster. But the first module (maybe what you're on?) and the last module take the longest.. esp the first one because I had no idea what they wanted. Good luck!
