The appointment is divided into two sections. In the first segment, the nurse is seeking to gather background information from the patient. The second section is the nurse talking to the patient after the doctor was in to talk to her. (For this project, we did not have an actual doctor, so it is based on an imagined interaction between doctor and patient.) In the second part, the nurse gives descriptions of the two procedures prescribed by the doctor.
Describing Recommended Procedures – Consecutive
In the second part of the appointment, the nurse gives Mary a description of the two procedures the doctor has determined are necessary to help in diagnosis. These procedures are a colonoscopy and an EGD. This part of the interview happened after an imagined meeting with Dr. Olson who then left it to the nurse to describe the procedures which he was recommending. (6:51)
