Start Your “Doctor-Patient Work” Prior to Meeting Your Chiropractic Patient Face-to-Face
Before you find yourself face to face with your chiropractic patient, it’s essential to review the intake paperwork to know what type of case to expect. Consider what changes might need to be made in your current process to ensure you are capturing all relevant data to be evaluated. A good foundation means good doctoring.
Review the Data to Formulate Your Questions for your Chiropractic Patient Interview
The patient’s history is broken down into the chief complaint and three other sections; History of Present Illness (HPI), Review of Systems (ROS) and Past, Family, and Social History (PFSH). Master all the data, and get prepared to ask clarifying questions about what you discover in the completed intake paperwork. Good preparation will expedite the chiropractic consultation process while getting all the right data, quickly and efficiently.
