Summary of the interview and a description of the communication techniques you would use with your assigned patient ( 26-year-old Lebanese female living in graduate-student housing ). Explain why you would use these techniques. Identify the risk assessment instrument you selected and justify why it would be applicable to the selected patient. Provide at least five targeted questions you would ask the patient. APA style 5 citation/references not older than 5 years

Provide at least five targeted questions you would ask the patient.
Five targeted questions I would ask her to build a health history will include; 1) what is your reason for seeking care? 2) Tell me about your previous living conditions? 3) Are you sexually active? 4) How do you cope up with stress, and 5) Do you have a support system or anyone that can help you in times of illness? These five questions may provide me with important information about her health risks and ways she manages an illness.
Lebanese Female in Graduate-Student Housing
A 26-year-old Lebanese female living in graduate-student housing presents to the clinic. I enter
the exam room and ask the patient how she communicates best. The student is a graduate
student and probably speaks English as a second language. I will not assume and bring in a
translation device with me. As an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP), I know that I need to
communicate with many patients throughout the day, that come from very different environments
and social complexities. However, I must show that I am a non-judgmental person or use
medical jargon that my patients may not understand (Ball et al., 2019, pg. 8).
Communication and interview techniques for building a health history differ with each patient.
All four of the scenario patients live in different environments and have many diverse social
complexities. Therefore, questions during their interviews would differ vastly for some. Some
may experience more financial burdens than others and not have a means to quality healthcare.
For some, it may be an issue of cultural diversity that exists.
According to Wu & Orlando (2015), health risk assessments provide an opportunity to promote
health and educate on disease prevention for individuals and populations. A vital component of
health risk assessments is a comprehensive collection of personal health history information.
This information helps establish risk both for common conditions and more rare diseases.
One risk assessment that should be asked of every patient is a risk assessment for suicide. There
are many school pressures, and being in a foreign country could be a huge que for depression.

College students are becoming increasingly depressed; however, many do not attend university
counseling to seek help (D’Amico et al., 2016).
Being Lebanese, certain cancers affect them more than others due to a heavy prevalence of
smoking. Due to smoking, bladder cancer is a huge concern for this population. Bladder cancer
cases that were the result of smoking in Lebanon among males and females are 33.4 and 18.6%,
respectively, according to Temraz et al. (2019).
Asking if the patient smokes would be a crucial question to ask. Sharing Evidence-Based
Research with the patient would be of the utmost importance.
Target Health Questions
If I were to develop targeted questions that I would ask my patient to assess her health risks and
begin building a health history. I would start with what brings you to see me today. Then I
would ask if she has any culture or spiritual practices that I need to be aware of/ and or if she is
involved with any spiritual groups within the community. I would ask her how important her
schoolwork and finishing her degree is to her. I would ask if she was under any duress or
depressed in her school life or social life. If she answers positively to depression, I would ask if
she seeks support for her college. I would ask if the patient smokes and/or uses alcohol to help
with stress? I would ask her if she was sexually active and how she feels about contraceptive
