For your first reflection assignment, please reflect on a patient-provider interaction that you or someone you know has experienced OR detail an example of a patient-provider interaction you have seen or heard in the media and describe the interaction using:
Please only use ONE of the above prompts, do not use both a personal example and a mediated example, or points will be deducted.
Hypothetical examples may include:
interaction: an experience you had with a provider,
book concepts: voice of medicine vs. voice of the life world
how verbal and nonverbal communication affected your perception of the interaction
interaction: an example you saw on TV of a patient with an illness
book concepts: how did the illness shape their identity?
how did they adapt their identity according to their illness (i.e. supernormal, accepting, etc.)
Note: You do NOT need to use these examples. In fact, I would prefer if you used something different, these are just starting points to get you to start thinking about the assignment.
