It transforms difficult clinical concepts into clear examples, illustrating the process of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning."Candice Knight, PhD, EdD, APN, PMHNP-BC Doody’s 4 Star! Review “This is a compilation of psychiatric case studies that represent the complaints, diagnoses, and treatments of the most common psychiatric disorders that nurse practitioners working in a broad range of settings are likely to encounter. Each case is displayed in the same way -- with an extensive description, mental status examination, differential diagnosis, and treatment plan. The cases include rationales for each diagnosis and tools to assist in patient assessment. This is an excellent addition to a psychiatric assessment course. It will be quite useful for programs using simulation, as it provides a foundation for cases as well as resources for students.”
