This paper provides a case study of young African man who was brought into A&E by the ambulance crew. The main theory that underpins the whole assessment process is the Roper- Logan-Tierney Model by Roper et al (1996), popularly known as the Roper's model, which emphasises the interaction between biological, psychological and social factors as influences on human behaviour and therefore, on health.

Background and Context of the Patient
The Assessment Process
The History of the Presenting Problem
Nursing Management Priorities

From the Paper:

"The history of the presenting problem was collected from the statements and the documentation of the paramedics as well as by directly asking the patient. In many cases the patient was asked to confirm the details. This was good as the patient was actively included in the process. The paramedic said that they had been called to the patient's address as the patient was a having a progressive headache and that it was so bad that he could not function in any way, let alone, drive to the A&E department."
