Axia College Material Appendix A Final Project Overview and Timeline Final Project Overview For this project, you will choose one scenario from the list of three located at the end of Appendix A. Each scenario describes patients you might come in contact with when working in the health care field. You will examine the role of communication for each key player. The paper will include a description of the scenario, an analysis of each key player’s perspective and role in communicating within the chosen patient scenario, communication implications, and methods for resolving the chosen patient scenario. You will be introduced to these concepts and terms throughout the course; your readings and activities will help prepare you to design your paper. For your final project, you will write a 2,100- to 2,800-word paper that covers the following elements: 1. Introduction 2. Description of the chosen patient scenario: Summarize the patient scenario you chose, considering the following questions. What major components of health communication are present, if any?
