Address the Importance of Physical Assessment • Apply evidence-based practice research findings in the management of a health issue. • Discuss how age, gender, and culture affect health assessment and physical examination outcomes and techniques. • Identify alternative methods, interview techniques, and tools used to assess clients based on age (i.e. ear check for a toddler, assessing skin turgor in the elderly), culture/ethnicity (i.e. dehydration in a dark-skinned client), gender (i.e. Pap smear), List all necessary assessment tools for the assessment of your specific patient for the specific age and condition.
