This week, you will continue to engage with Meditrek, recording your clinical hours and patient encounters. You will also reinforce your knowledge about assessment and diagnosis of neurocognitive, neurodevelopmental, eating, and somatic symptom-related disorders through the resource selections. As you think about the patients in your clinical setting who may have one of these types of disorders, consider the strategies you would use to facilitate the treatment and management process while providing patient education and support.

Next week, you will complete another comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and case presentation on a clinical patient that you examined during the last 2 weeks. This should be a patient who presented with any disorder other than the one you selected for your Week 5 presentation. Additionally, you will continue your clinical hour and patient logs in Meditrek. You will also review resource selections that support your assessment and diagnosis of schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders, and medication-induced movement disorders.
