PRAC 6635: Psychopathology and Diagnostic Reasoning Practicum – Week 9

Assignment 2: Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation and Patient Case Presentation 

Assignment

Record yourself presenting the complex case for your clinical patient. In your presentation:

  • Dress professionally with a lab coat and present yourself in a professional manner.
  • Display your photo ID at the start of the video when you introduce yourself.
  • Ensure that you do not include any information that violates the principles of HIPAA (i.e., don’t use the patient’s name or any other identifying information).
  • Present the full case. Include chief complaint; history of present illness; any pertinent past psychiatric, substance use, medical, social, family history; most recent mental status exam; and current psychiatric diagnosis including differentials that were ruled out.
  • Report normal diagnostic results as the name of the test and “normal” (rather than specific value). Abnormal results should be reported as a specific value.

Be succinct in your presentation, and do not exceed 8 minutes. Address the following:

  • Subjective: What details did the patient provide regarding their personal and medical history? What are their symptoms of concern? How long have they been experiencing them, and what is the severity? How are their symptoms impacting their functioning?
  • Objective: What observations did you make during the interview and review of systems? 
  • Assessment: What were your differential diagnoses? Provide a minimum of three (3) possible diagnoses. List them from highest to lowest priority. What was your primary diagnosis, and why? 
  • Reflection notes: What would you do differently in a similar patient evaluation?
