I found this video provided a lot of information in a relatively short period of time. While the information was helpful, I think it was too much all at one time. Trying to cover the range of topics involved in the process from the steps to insurance coverage, I believe would be best done by the individual specialists. I would want to provide the best and most accurate information to my patient and while stating that I don’t know or that I can look into it and get back to her/provide resources is an acceptable approach, given the vast amount of information provided in the video (and the patients wringing of her hands) I felt it was too much to take in at one setting. Overall, having designated persons to cover specific topic areas may provide the patient a better way to absorb the process.
I would agree with this as well. This is quiet a lot of information that was provided. I think this should serve as an overall discussion and she should be connected with specific individuals to obtain detailed information (i.e. physician to discuss benefits and risk of treatment on breast CA patients; social work/case manger to discuss specific costs). I also think having a family member or friend present for emotional support would be helpful.
I agree. She did a great job of presenting the information but didn’t verify that the patient understood what she was relaying throughout the discussion. You could also see the patient was in some distress by her body language, I feel this should’ve been addressed first prior to presenting all the information about egg retrieval.
