Necessary HistoryHealthcare professionals shall assess a patient’s personal, social, and family history to detect any risk factors for certain diseases. When diagnosing and prescribing medications to patients, providers must also be aware of any known allergies and reactions to avoid life-threatening events. Furthermore, it is imperative for providers to gain full details on the patient’s subjective assessment during their visit and to confirm such with an objective assessment (Dains, Baumann & Scheibel, 2016).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
