Evaluation of interview.

Extracts from this document...


Evaluation of interview For my interview I decided to interview someone who thought they were pregnant. While interviewing the patient there were a lot of things I felt I shouldn't have done. When I welcomed the patient into my office I didn't close the door behind them and so all the noise from outside was coming in and it was hard to hear what she was trying to say to me.

Also I made the patient see that I was listening to everything she was telling me. I think I made quite a good effort to communicate although it was a bit poor sometimes as I sat there in silence for a while because I didn't know what to talk about. ...read more.

While I was talking I wasn't very confident and I made it obvious that I was nervous as well as I kept on playing around with my pen and smiling all the time, and laughing because of how nervous I felt. While we were doing this interview it made me think that I wouldn't like to be a doctor in the future as I don't think I would be very confident in speaking to different people everyday.
