    The last minutes...

    While concluding, keep this 4-stage pattern in mind to be complete and to be courteous:

    a. First, Counsel !!! For example - for a case of diabetes, it is good to say a few words on foot care ! if the patient smokes or drinks alcohol - say "are you aware of the harmful effects of smoking / alcohol ? Have you ever considered quitting - if you wish to , we have a good support team that is willing to help you quit the habit" thats it - dont get personal about it .

    b. Then say " Have you understood everything we have discussed today ?"

    c. Then "Are there any special concerns you have ?"

    d. Finally " Thankyou very much Mr. Smith . I shall leave my contact information with my nurse - feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions"
