Follow-up vs support group?

The only thing that saved me was the ancient Step 1 adage: "Never refer!"

Especially when the answer to another question in the same exam was "Encourage the patient to participate in a support group for persons with her condition"

I mean REALLY! The only difference is that they used the word "encourage" instead of refer. Exact same answer.

cbreland  Note to self: Never refer, even when that seems like the better answer +

donttrustmyanswers  It isn't A, because research shows that understanding of information (i.e. eating good and exercising) isn't enough to cause change. Why it is Provide F/U, over support group, IDK. +6
