Psychiatric notes are a way to reflect on your practicum experiences and connect them to the didactic learning you gain from your NRNP courses. Focused SOAP 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 three weeks, using the Focused SOAP Note Template provided. You will then use this note to develop and record a case presentation for this patient. 

To Prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning      Resources and consider the insights they provide.
  • Select a patient of any age      (either a child or an adult) that you examined during the last 3 weeks.
  • Create a Focused SOAP Note      on this patient using the template provided in the Learning Resources.      There is also a completed Focused SOAP Note Exemplar provided to serve as      a guide to assignment expectations.
    Please Note:

    • When you submit your note,       you should include the complete focused SOAP note as a Word document 
    • You must submit your SOAP       note using SafeAssign. Note: If both files are not       received by the due date, faculty will deduct points per the Walden       Grading Policy.
  • Include at least five      scholarly resources to support your assessment, diagnosis, and treatment      planning.
  • diagnosis aligns with DSM-5 diagnostic       criteria and supported by the patient’s symptoms.
  • Plan: What was your plan       for psychotherapy? What was your plan for treatment and management,       including alternative therapies? Include pharmacologic and       nonpharmacologic treatments, alternative therapies, and follow-up       parameters, as well as a rationale for this treatment and management       plan. Also be sure to include at least one health promotion activity       and one patient education strategy.
  • Reflection notes: What would you do       differently with this patient if you could conduct the session       again? If you are able to follow up with your patient, explain       whether these interventions were successful and why or why not. If you       were not able to conduct a follow up, discuss what your next intervention       would be.
