Head-to-Toe Physical Assessment Video
Assignment 2: Head-to-Toe Physical Assessment Video
Throughout this course, you were encouraged to practice conducting various physical assessments on multiple areas of the body, ranging from the head to the toes. Each of these assessments, however, was conducted independently of one another. For this Assignment, you connect the knowledge and skills you gained from each individual assessment to perform a comprehensive head-to-toe physical examination on a volunteer “patient.”
- Arrange an appropriate time and setting with your volunteer “patient” to perform a head-to-toe physical examination. Note: Your volunteer’s Video Release Form must be submitted prior to the exam. Refer to the Week 1 Looking Ahead for release form details.
- Download and review the Physical Examination Objective Data Checklist from this week’s Learning Resources.
- Ensure that you have the appropriate lighting and equipment to perform the examination.
- Record yourself performing the head-to-toe physical examination. Be sure to cover all of the areas listed in the checklist and to use any equipment appropriately.
