Patient
Your preparation time is over. You can now start your speaking role-play. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up.

Nurse
Good morning. My name is Stalin Fernandez. One of the registered nurses working in this clinic. How may I help you today?

Patient
Good morning, Stalin. I am here to give some advice regarding my daughter’s headache.

Nurse
All right. I am happy to help you. Well, for better communication, how may I address you?

Patient
You can call me —–.

Nurse
Okay. ——, can you please explain to me in detail about your daughter’s headache?

Patient
Sure. My daughter is six years old and has been having a lot of headaches. Otherwise, she is healthy.

Nurse
All right. Me here. Could you please tell me what bothers you exactly?

Patient
Actually, I don’t think there is anything to worry about. But I would like to give some advice on how to manage her headache.

Nurse
Yes, I acknowledge your words. In order to provide advice, I require more information. —, please tell me more details about your child’s headaches.

Patient
Definitely, her headaches started about three months ago. Since then, she has experienced headaches two or three times a month, lasting for minutes. More interestingly, it can occur at any time.

Nurse
I’m sorry to hear that. Can you please tell me the area of the head affected?

Patient
Sometimes, the pain is affected all over the head, and sometimes, she complains of a frontal headache.

Nurse
Have you asked the level of pain she is experiencing?

Patient
Yes. My daughter says the pain is quite alarming.

Nurse
I am sad to hear that your daughter has been experiencing quite a lot of pain. Does she have any other symptoms?

Patient
No, Nurse. She doesn’t feel sick and shows no other symptoms.

Nurse
Good to hear that. I wish to know whether you have tried any treatments or not.

Patient
Yes, several times. I have applied ice packs and given paracetamol tablets for pain relief.

Nurse
Thank you for your detailed explanation. Now, let me inform you about the headaches and children.

Patient
Okay.

Nurse
Usually, if the child is having any tension, it will create headaches. Otherwise, the headache may not generally be caused by any concern. Another possibility is that the headache can be genetic.

Patient
All right.

Nurse
Beyond this, I can outline some possible trigger factors for headaches.

Patient
Okay.

Nurse
Whenever your child feels tired, it can result in a headache. Or else, if she consumes insufficient food and fluid, a headache is natural. Talking about the activities, One of the significant causes is excess screen time. Spending more time looking at digital gadgets will give your child a headache. In addition, any changes in routine diet may also create it.

Nurse
Is there any relevance of these to your child?

Patient
Talking about these factors, My daughter sleeps and eats well, but she probably doesn’t drink enough water, especially at school.

Nurse
Okay.

Patient
She also plays computer games a lot, and it isn’t easy to get her to bed.

Nurse
All right.

Patient
She hasn’t had any change to either her diet or her routine recently.

Nurse
I am much obliged to you for providing me with the details. I wish to suggest to you some of the ways to prevent headaches.

Patient
That will be of great help.

Nurse
Nurse: The most essential and basic change needed is consistency in daily routine. Consistency in sleeping, eating, and exercising is critical along with that. Make sure the body is well hydrated in order to perform effectively. Above all comes the rest. Find sufficient time for relaxing.

Patient
I think these are beneficial suggestions.

Nurse
Glad to hear that. The next thing you should make sure of is the reduction of screen time before bed. Spending too much time looking at the screen will cause headaches and vision problems. Sometimes, vision problems can also lead to headaches.

Patient
Yes, Nurse, I understand that.

Nurse
I would like to provide some recommendations to note down for diagnosis purposes. Try to maintain a diary to write notes about your daughter’s headache by noting the points in the diary. We will be able to identify the specific triggering factors.

Patient
That is a good idea. I will maintain a diary.

Nurse
Perhaps. I also suggest you make a doctor’s appointment for your child. It is nothing but to rule out any underlying causes if they exist.

Patient
Wellness. If my daughter needs to see a doctor, there must be something wrong with her, isn’t it?

Nurse
I realize your thoughts. Don’t panic. I will explain why I suggest the doctor’s consultation.

Patient
Okay. Why do I recommend the doctor’s appointment? Is that a precautionary measure?

Nurse
By getting a consultation, the doctor will provide reassurance about your daughter’s condition. On the other hand, if she requires any attention, the doctor can also give more advice. I hope I made the suggestion clear now.

Patient
Yes, Nurse, It is clear to me now. Surely I will take my daughter to the doctor just to be sure. And I will follow all that advice.

Nurse
Thank you for your understanding and acceptance. I hope I have cleared all your concerns. Please feel free to contact us for further queries. I wish your daughter a speedy recovery.

Patient
Thank you. That is the end of your latest speaking role. Play all the very best.
