I really enjoyed how much detail you went into explaining the method of the physical examination, the normal and abnormal findings and even a self evaluation at the end. More sound clips or photos would have made the site more interesting.
Some of the sound clips for the hear sounds were barily audible.

I was glad to discover this as a resource for my physical assessment class. I am a faculty member in a nursing program.
The information was easy to access and would be easy for a first time user. I agree that more information about the total person assessment would be beneficial. This definitely is built on the medical model and not the nursing model.

This website provided easy access to basic physical examination procedures that could be understood and utilized by those not in the medical profession. The language was detailed, specific and easy to follow.

The course content is outlined in an organized way allowing users to focus on one system or jump among them. Overall, the content is accurate. The content areas, method, knowledge, abnormal, self-eval organize the content and the photos are helpful. Video might be useful as well. The self evaluation content, found when clicking on MAIN is a valuable learning tool.
The index to self evaluations is not identified clearly.

Otoscopic examination - it is now recommended that the otoscope be held like a pen so the side of the hand can be used to as a support against the head to prevent injury with movement.
Sensory assessment of the face indicates a pin is used to assess sharp sensation. Use of a pin is discouraged because of the potential for injury. Rather than a pin, use a broken applicator so the cotton end is splayed for soft and the broken end is then used for sharp.
We also noted that the general assessment lacks a holistic perspective of assessing the mind and the spirit which are integral with any assessment of the body.
