Mock Clinical Interviews with Nonverbal Standardized Patients


This set of very brief MPEG video clips shows segments of mock clinical interviews with standardized patients who communicate in ways other than verbally and who portray acute care illnesses. Specifically, the clips depict: (1) an interviewer determining how the patient says "yes" and "no"; (2) a patient using an electronic communication device; (3) an interviewer determining where the patient's discomfort is; and (4) an interviewer determining the duration of symptoms. The clips are drawn from an instructional module entitled, "Serving Persons Who Have Developmental Disabilities in the Health Care Setting," produced in 2002 by the Matheny School and Hospital, Inc. with a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, U.S. Department of Education (H133G010153), PI: Kenneth L. Robey, Ph.D.
