Learning Objectives for Module 14:
- Be familiar with the different types of pathology and radiology tests
- Be familiar with what tests to order for certain presentations under the guidance of the doctor
- Know relevant historical features that might require an ECG, blood tests or radiology
- Know how to order tests including clinical information
- Know how to document pathology results
- Know the terminology relevant to writing radiology results
- Be familiar with the terms of an ECG and how to write an interpretation.
After interviewing and examining the patient, the physician will often order specific blood tests or imaging to confirm or rule out an illness. This includes things like ECGs, urinalysis, FBC/eLFT/Coags and CRP, and medical imaging like an xray, CT scan or Ultrasound.
The scribe can order the tests as requested by the doctor, and help track down results as they become available. When results are available, it is very helpful if they are shown to the doctor who will then interpret them. The scribe then documents the results and interpretation in the chart. You'll need to stay on top of what has been ordered, keep your eye out for the results and bring it to the attention of the doctor ASAP.
