Attach the interview format document you would use for an initial interview of a client.
Table 1. Initial interview format (adapted from Morrison, n.d.)
The interview format used by my preceptor first began with an introduction the established the interview’s purpose. This included warmly greeting the patients and using words that demonstrated concern, attention and care. While conducting the interview, my preceptor did not take any notes or write any information. In fact, my preceptor maintained ongoing eye contact. In addition, the patient was instructed to offer addictions, corrections, interactions and ask questions during the course of the interview. The timeframe of the interview was also announced at the beginning and strictly adhered to at by the end of the interview. An important element in the interview was an acknowledgment that some of the questions would be highly personal or even offensive, but the patient was under no obligation to answer the questions (Wheeler, 2014).
Describe which element of your interview format is most helpful in your practice.
The initial introduction was very useful since it established the purpose of the interview while helping in creating an alliance in which both the interview and interviewee understand that the principal objective is to achieve good health for the patient. It also helped in creating a rapport with the patient thereby indicating that the interaction is collaborative thus allowing the patient to be expressive and truthful without reservations. In addition, the introduction is important because of its capacity to set a therapeutic alliance that helps the patient feel safe and hopeful of receiving help to address the existing problem (Sadock, B., Sadock, V. & Ruiz, 2014; Wheeler, 2014). Overall, the initial introduction is very important since it sets the style, quality and tone of the interview to imply that if it goes wrong then the later aspects of the interview would similarly go wrong but if it goes right then the later aspects would similarly go right.
