Family Attachment Scheme Dept of General Practice, Queen’s University Belfast Visit Date: Duration: Dialogue Student/Patient/FamilyIssues ArisingResponse Any -biomedical -psychosocial -professional -factual Issues that arise which the student needs to or should find out more about – should be jotted down here For example: - social class -various conditions ( medical) -odd behaviour requiring interpretation What did the student do to resolve/ address Issues Eg Looked up Spoke to etc Miss X volunteered with great feeling how much she missed her mother and how she had been a great source of strength at difficult times in her life Found it a bit embarrassing when Mrs X got distressed talking about her mother. Must bring this up in the tutorial group – what is the best way to deal with these situations – what should you say or do. Why did Miss X never marry? What proportion of the population remain unmarried? What influence has the unmarried state on health? We were surprised at how profoundly this elderly lady still missed her mother Useful discussion in tutorial group about loneliness and also about changing composition of society and extended family. See if we can get answers to how many people do not marry etc. from census data Example of a student learning log
