  • Use “active listening” with the young client; i.e. acknowledging, confirming and asking clarification from the speaker
  • Provide information simply and use visual aids which motivates proactively as much as possible.
  • Ask appropriate and effective questions and use open-ended questions.
  • Allow the medical student to ask questions and seek clarification.
