In this chapter the essential aspects of treatment options regarding a clinical scenario are discussed. The chapter begins with a mock scenario of a patient with lacerated multiple tendons in her hand. The mock scenario is followed by a task statement that describes the specific action that the student must take. In this case, the task is to discuss with the patient the anesthetic options given the patient’s specific concerns and agree upon an anesthetic plan. Included in this process is communicating to the patient the benefits and risks associated with each option, as well as concern for her safety. An action plan is then presented in a stepwise manner with mock responses and a discussion of the responses. Grading points are also discussed and how to achieve maximum score is presented.
