Scenario #1 – Musculoskeletal System:
Mr. Jones is a 65-year-old African-American male who comes to the Emergency Room with complaints of joint pain in both knees. He states the pain usually starts in the early morning at sunrise. He takes Tylenol as needed but does not get any relief. Upon assessment, you notice two fingers are deformed with minimal range of motion.
- Based on her presenting signs, what other questions would you elicit?
- How would you demonstrate knowledge of cultural sensitivity/humility in approach to this patient?
- What would you assess?
- What could be the problem?
