The purpose of this assignment is for learners to:
1. Have the opportunity to integrate knowledge and skills learned throughout all core courses
2. Demonstrate an advancing understanding of the patient with a mental health disorder in primary care.
3. Demonstrate the ability to analyze the literature/ previous patients seen in the clinical setting be able to perform an evidenced-based review of their case, diagnosis, and plan, while guiding and taking feedback from peers regarding the case.
4. Demonstrate professional communication and leadership, while advancing the education of peers.
Activity Learning Outcomes
Through this discussion, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
1. Interpret subjective and objective data to develop appropriate diagnoses and evidence based management plans for patients and families with complex or multiple diagnoses across the lifespan. (CO 1)
2. Develop management plans based on current scientific evidence and national guidelines. (CO 4)
Part 2- Turning in your final treatment plan and Analysis
The final treatment plan will include the primary diagnosis, diagnostic testing recommended by National Guidelines. Medications, interventions, education, labs, follow up, referrals. After completing the treatment plan include the following sections in a large area called ANALYSIS:
1. Pathophysiology and Pharmacology: For the primary diagnoses in the case, write a brief summary of the underlying pathophysiology and tie pharmacological treatment chosen in the reversal or control of that pathology.
2. Additional analysis of the case: This includes national guidelines that were or should have been used to make diagnosis or treatment and review how they applied or how care was unique but based in guidelines.
3. Follow-up/Referrals: This means how the patient was doing when seen a second time if this applies. This would be their response to your plan of care. OR when Follow up will occur and what actions will be taken on the follow up visit. Referrals if indicated.
4. Quality: Include anything that should have been considered in hindsight or changes you would make in seeing similar patients in the future with the same complaint, history, exam, or diagnosis. Add anything you learned from discussion in the class that shed new light on this patient.
5. Coding and Billing. Any or all CPT and ICD-10 codes that should have been used (List them and name them only.
Written in a word document and submitted in the Week 6 case study summary submission box.

Application of Course Knowledge: Thorough treatment plan and analysis of the following for summary: guidelines that should have been used, what further should have been added to care or follow up, lessons learned from this and class discussion. The final analysis section must also contain: *Pathophysiology and Pharmacology analysis *Additional analysis of the case as noted above *Follow-up *Quality Analysis *Coding and Billing using original dialogue i.e., no direct quotes. Diagnostic testing recommended follows National Guidelines. Clinical insights are supported by rationale and student addresses all assignment criterion.
