Differential diagnoses are developed by a clinician upon learning of the chief complaint. One must begin to develop the possibility of potential diagnoses mentally to guide the care provided to the patient. These potential diagnoses are developed by the care provider and are often based on one’s past clinical experiences, awareness of the illness and a clear understanding of the patient’s complaint (Goolsby & Grubbs, 2014). The care provider with experience may develop these diagnoses independently and others with less experience may utilize evidence-based resources and clinical guidelines to aid in this process (Goolsby & Grubbs, 2014). The process for reaching a final diagnosis requires further investigation and use of physical assessment

The patient that I have chosen for my diagnostic reasoning paper is a 47-year-ol-Hispanic female. The presenting problem that I have chosen to use as my patient’s chief complaint is back pain. The only other clues that I have to use in order to help narrow my focus is that she is a female, she is 47-years-old, and she is Hispanic. I do not know how long she has been experiencing pain or how severe her pain is. Given these parameters, I will “cast a wide net” as I evaluate my patient and create my list of differential diagnoses.

In the field of social work, the intake form is typically the first interaction between the client and the social worker. An intake form allows the practitioner to gather and analyze information regarding the potential client, in order to determine if the agency can meet their presenting needs. Intake forms differ depending on the setting, but all should assess the numerous systems that affect the client and their presenting problem.
Journey’s intake unit completes all initial assessment to assess client for different level of care and accurately assign them to the most appropriate unit. The different level of care ranged from intensive inpatient care unit to medication only. As a practicum student, I worked in the outpatient services unit. The assessment was completed via an online program with an intake staff and the client, usually a week or two before the first scheduled appointment with a clinician. Therefore, once a client is assigned to me, I have access to review their file. The assessment are usually completed in a brief model format, and as the clinician assigned to work with a client, I am expected to use the first two sessions of therapy

In considering a differential diagnosis of ADHD and a learning disability, there are a few specifics that school counselors should consider. Children with hyperactivity underachieve because of their difficulty attending in the classroom, low rates of academic engagement, and inconsistent work completion (DuPaul et al., 2008). Children with a diagnosis of ADHD, behaviors are pervasive, exhibited in both the home and school environments, and impair academic and social functioning (Barkley, 2003). In differentiating the symptoms of hyperactivity disease with other mental health disorders, the authors have noted that similar symptoms of inattention have been found in children who have mental retardation. Symptoms of oppositional defiant disorder should also be differentiated with hyper activeness, although many children are diagnosed with both. Distinguishing between
The rationale for including these students in high-stakes tests it to hold them to the same high standards as their peers and to ensure that their needs are not overlooked. (Coltrane, 2002) Effective schools use assessment measures that are aligned with their school goals and vision as well as with the appropriate school curriculum. The goal is for students to feel as if they are significant part of the learning process. At a young age, students need to feel the importance of their education and take pride in the work that they do. At times this is not possible, because they simply don’t understand what is being taught due to language barriers. It is important to analyze and interpret data in significant ways to achieve program accountability and improvement. In order for successful outcomes, the staff needs to be taught as well and provided with professional development that is focused on assessment and interpretation of data. Not only is the assessment and accountability, the curriculum, and the professional development of staff important, but with
There are 11 hospitals located within 25 miles of my house, which is rather astounding considering I live in rural Pennsylvania. Hospital compare only allows you to compare 3 facilities at a time. I chose to look the Hospital where I work. Our major competitor and a tertiary hospital to which we refer our trauma cases 20 miles away. It is interesting that several of the facilities listed are not really hospitals at all. The website is deceiving and includes surgery centers. You can only tell they are not Hospitals because they are listed as having no emergency services. Under general information all 3 hospitals were similar. Our hospital and our competitor carries a 3 star rating. I was surprised the tertiary hospital only had a one
Part two (B, D, and E) of the Diagnostic Criteria states that the symptoms do not meet criteria for a Mixed Episode or bipolar disorder, must cause significant distress or impairment in important areas of functioning, are not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance, and persist longer than two weeks.
