25 Interview Questions & Answers

What will you do if you have a client that refuses to take care of their health?

Example #1
"I have learned that working in the medical field requires a certain amount of tolerance. I remind patients of the impact healthy lifestyle choices will make on their conditions, but sometimes I am limited on my influence. I have found that giving patients a clear picture by explaining what is actually happening in their body helps them to understand and often take action."
Example #2
"It is frustrating to see ailing individuals who do not want to help themselves. I have found that many people are overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information they receive. I will encourage my patients to make one small change at a time. This could include committing to drinking more water, or eating more fibrous foods."
Example #3
"This is the challenge of any patient care professional because patients are ultimately accountable for their health once they leave our care. I urge patients to look long-term at how they can make even small improvements. If they are unwilling to make those changes, it's my primary job to care for the patient regardless."
