In the Organon [1], Hahnemann outlines aspects to consider and pay particular attention to when interviewing a patient. He describes how a patients case history is to be taken, and reminds of elements in the comportment and behaviour of the practitioner that aid the patient-practitioner relationship. These guidelines aim to facilitate to a practitioner the retrieval of relevant information from the patient, such that an appropriate curative remedy may be prescribed.

A compilation of these directions that Hahnemann outlines to the practising homeopath in his Organon [1], is available here: http://hpathy.com/organon-philosophy/hahnemannian-art-taking-case/
