Health Care for clients is NOT a one-time, hastily done affair. It is a step by step process, where each stage needs time and effort, with precise, comprehensive action in order to accomplish its desired effect. One stage must be fully completed before moving on to the next, and each stage is equally important. This approach to holistic health care ensures a complete treatment for the patient. The fundamental steps to the approach are (1) Assessment (2) Identification (3) Intervention (4) Evaluation.
Assessment of the client is the first step. It initiates and ensures detailed knowledge of a client’s complaint and history. It doesn’t stop there – lifestyle, diet, living conditions, family, habits, past and present occupation, etc. The information gathered through friendly interviews and tests assures that we have complete and precise information of our patients. Knowing them inside and out is a must to have a better understanding of their medical history.
Identification of the problem follows. Using the complete information gathered, the next step is identifying the problem, and eventually arriving at the conclusion on what is the clinical impression or diagnosis. We make sure that every inch of data is reviewed meticulously to arrive at an accurate identification of the illness, which will be then thoroughly explained to the client in a manner that they can understand.
Intervention or treatment, the next step, will cater to the client’s needs by providing the fastest, most effective, least expensive, and least painful process or regimen to address the client’s problem. Each medication or procedure is carefully selected to suit the client’s needs – because even if they have the same illness, each and every patient is different because of external and intrinsic factors that is unique with each person. This is exactly why the first step in knowing the patient fully well is important.
Evaluation and follow up is the last but equally important step. This appraises how effective the treatment is, ensures that the client is recovering at full capacity, and checks for any other possible complications that need to be addressed.
