I’m fortunate to work in a team, so we all participate; I’m not the only one who has to do that. But I do provide information about the injury to a degree. I’m spending more of my time as a psychologist kind of talking to them about their reaction, how they’re coping with it, what’s going on with them at that time. And I’m listening to what their goals are and what their hopes and aspirations are. But I like to think what is most important is that the individual is collecting information from all of us, asking really all of us the same questions and hopefully using the bits and pieces of information to put it together. But we need to appreciate that they’re also receiving a lot of information that can be very overwhelming, so it’s okay to ask the questions over again.
