Health Assessment Digital Clinical Experiences, 1st Edition
Shadow Health’s Digital Clinical Experiences™ for Health Assessment provide you with a safe, convenient, and dynamic environment to practice your physical examination, documentation, communication, and clinical reasoning skills. An innovative conversation engine enables you to become more efficient in your patient interactions while maintaining high-quality therapeutic communication and care planning. These meaningful interactions help you gain valuable experience in practical application, patient communication, and personal empathy, empowering you to improve patient outcomes and prepare to enter clinical practice. Health assessment assignments cover gathering a full health history, as well as topics for the body systems for HEENT, respiratory, cardiovascular, abdominal, musculoskeletal, neurological, skin, hair, and nails. You will also work through a comprehensive exam, the discharge of a patient, and focused exams on cough, chest pain, and abdominal pain.
- Digital Standardized Patients™ vary in age, race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and have health histories and diseases/disorders that support your mastery of nursing principles in a wide spectrum of medical situations.
