Assessment of the patient-information-communicator’s Online-learning portfolio for Arun Chaudhary, March 2016


Patients are interviewed by the learner and s/he also creates their HIPAA de-identified online-health-records that may contain their history and clinical images other than their investigations
(Prepared by Jyoti Tripathi)
Case 2: Blog not made but history shared on non-shareable-online forum


Here the learner is concerned with how things happen by attempting to see them from different perspectives and relying on one’s thoughts, feelings and judgement. (Reference 1)
