Developed as part of a 120-hour nursing course, this lesson plan focuses on the patient interview, providing an overview of communication skills, nonverbal and verbal communication skills, and five basic categories of verbal response (i.e., evaluative, hostile, reassuring, probing, and understanding). The module is designed to teach students about different kinds of responses encountered during the patient interview and about kinds of nonverbal behavior to be avoided during the interview. The lesson plan begins with information on the course for which the plan was developed; equipment and audio-visual aids needed; requirements for student materials; course objectives; bibliographic references; and special remarks for the instructor. Next, a step-by-step outline of the instructor's presentation is provided in a format indicating the length of time and the equipment or other aids needed for each step of the lesson. Course handouts, transparency masters, quiz, and teacher guidelines are included. (EJV)
