At first the way the question is asked about comprehensive or focused I felt lead to a
focused exam. After reviewing the details presented, I need to know more information
and would like to establish a relationship and baseline with the patient.

Due to the unknown of information the exam is a comprehensive exam. Again, due to not
knowing if the patient and the need to establish a baseline. According to Bickley et al.,
2021, the comprehensive exam does more than assess body systems. The comprehensive
exam personalizes the knowledge about the patient and builds a relationship. The
comprehensive exam provides a basis for assessing the patient’s concerns and answering
any questions (Bickley et al., 2021).
