Resident Instructions:

Mrs. Hassan is a 45 year-old Iraqi woman who has been in Charlottesville for 8 months. She fled from Iraq with 3 of her children to Jordan, and then to the U.S, where she is being helped by the IRC. Mrs. Hassan has been in to see you, her primary care doctor, and other clinicians at Family Medicine several times since arriving. She has been complaining of pain in different parts of her body, including headaches, backaches, and abdominal pain. She has been extensively evaluated with brain MRI and a number of other x-rays and blood tests. Nothing was identified, and she is being treated for mild reflux, tension headaches and mild osteoarthritis. You are seeing her today for follow-up. At today’s visit, you have decided to focus on her psycho-social issues. You have not taken an extensive psycho-social history in the past.

 

Once you have obtained a focused history, you are to leave the room and complete a checklist on the computer.
