Discussion: video report of your case consultation: presenting and

  

In this Discussion, you first present to your peers the case collaboration begun in Week 4. Note: You make this presentation individually—you do not present with your partner. Your colleagues then review your diagnosis for validity, recommending an evidence-based tool to use in your case.

Such tools help confirm the details and validity of a diagnosis. Measures also help clinicians notice other patterns in a disorder that might otherwise be missed. By confirming an accurate diagnosis through a measurement instrument, a social worker ensures that the appropriate evidence-based treatment is used.

By Day 2

Post the following two pieces:

  • Use the Kaltura Media uploader      to upload a 3- to 5-minute video in which you:
    • Briefly summarize your case,       highlighting the diagnostic symptoms seen in the case.
    • Describe your decision-making       process for identifying the key problems in the case and the differential       eliminations for your case.
    • Identify the diagnosis chosen       by you and your partner for the client in the case. Explain the diagnosis       by providing the supporting DSM-5 criteria with specific examples of how       your client met those criteria.

Include a transcript and/or edit closed captioning on your video to ensure your presentation is accessible to colleagues of differing abilities.

  • Post a fully coded DSM-5      diagnosis. Remember, a full diagnosis should include the name of the      disorder, ICD-10-CM code, specifiers, severity, and the Z codes (other      conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention).
