  26. Always have a good reasonfor every question you ask

  27. Remember: If you don’t ask the question... You’ll never know!

  28. How to communicate with adolescents • Have a conversation, not an interrogatory • Be specific • Clarify concepts • Summarize periodically • Avoid medical jargon • Avoid closed questions • Give the impression that nothing can surprise anymore

  29. Tips: DO • Go through the chart/referral notes before seeing the patient • Go to the waiting room to fetch the patient • Introduce yourself by name, shake hands if appropriate • Once in the office, present yourself and what you do • Assure confidentiality • Define the meaning of words • Be professional

  30. Tips: DO • Let the patient tell his/her story without interruptions as much as possible • Then use open-ended questions to clarify • Listen in a non judgmental manner • Ask questions in a non threatening way, have a conversation • Accentuate the positive • Have a good reason for each question • Summarize the conversation

  31. Tips: AVOID • Medical jargon • Yes/No questions • Being one of the gang: they’re looking for a professional! • Doing an interrogation • Asking what you don’t need to know • Writing down during the interview/ Checking record

  32. THE WALL(when your patient does not want to talk) • Keep talking allow him/her to be silent • Start with closed questions • Explore possible interest areas • Use the physical exam as an opportunity • After talking (or not!) with the patient for a while, imply the parents L’entrevista

  33. Some cases to role-play

  34. Case 1 • You are a 14 year-old girl that since 2 weeks complains of abdominal pain. • You smoke a few cigarettes per day even though your mother (who is a former smoker ) does not want you to. • You have a boyfriend 2 years older than you with whom you are sexually active, always using a condom except for the last time (2 weeks ago) and you are afraid you may be pregnant. You DO NOT WANT your mother to know that you are sexually active. For this reason, you will only tell the health professi0onal if s/he assures you that the interview will be confidential.

  35. Case 2 • You are a 13 year-old boy sent to the consultation by the school nurse because of headaches (2-3 per week) that force you to stay at home and miss your classes. The headaches are easily handled with paracetamol. • Your grades are not good and missing so many classes does not help at all. • Additionally, some of your classmates make fun of you because of your weight (70kg) for a height of 153 cm. In fact you don’t want to go to school because your classmates bully you, but you do not want your parents to know. For this reason, you will only tell the health professi0nal if s/he assures you that the interview will be confidential.

  36. Case 3 • You're a 17 year old boy who needs a certificate to play football. Your studies are going well, no problems at home. No smoking or drinking, but occasional cannabis use with your teammates. • You do 3 training sessions + 1 game per week and you are a little tired. Your coach offered you to take a "vitamin" but you do not know what to do. • Additionally, you are a bit tired of playing football and would like to do something different, but your father (a former player) pushes you to play and you do not want to deceive him. For this reason, you will only tell the health professi0nal if s/he assures you that the interview will be confidential.

  37. Case 4 • You're a 17 year old girl coming at the request of your mother because she believes that you are too thin and you do not eat enough. You lost 5 kg in one month. • Currently you weigh 45 kg and you measure 161 cm. You had your menarche at age13. Your periods are very regular but the last ones were 6 weeks ago. • You do not do vomit and you do not take laxatives, but you always choose low calorie foods. You do one hour of fitness 5 times a week. For this reason, you will only tell the health professi0nal if s/he assures you that the interview will be confidential.
