Comprehensive notes, such as the ones required in this practicum course, are often used in clinical settings to document patient care.
For this Assignment, you will document information about a patient that you examined during the last 7 weeks, using the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation Template provided. You will then use this note to develop and record a case presentation for this patient.
Select a patient that you examined during the last 7 weeks. Review prior resources on the disorder this patient has.
It is recommended that you use the Kaltura Personal Capture tool to record and upload your assignment.
