In this chapter the essential aspects of communication with other health professionals are discussed. The chapter begins with a mock scenario involving a patient undergoing an elective right inguinal hernia repair. 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 present a recommendation to the surgeon to postpone the surgery and determine the best course of action. 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.
