*Choose a dilemma in psychiatry and choose something that interests you. Back your statements with evidence based peer reviewed journal articles to
strengthen the validity of your presentation. For this assignment, imagine a patient you anticipate encountering in your future practice. You will choose an
issue that may arise when treating patients with psychiatric diagnoses. You will need to include the challenges that may need to be addressed as a
comprehensive treatment plan is considered. Find something that has been recently developed to aid in the treatment of one of these illnesses. Remember
the make the slides clear and easy to read without overfilling each slide. ( Use bullets for the main points and elaborate verbally when giving the
presentation). References must be within the past five years to provide the most current updates. Powerpoint should be in APA 7th format including the title
and reference slides.
Develop a 5-7 slide PPT presentation with voice over (not including the title and reference slides).
This presentation should not exceed 5-7 minutes in length and will be a powerpoint presentation with voice over to discuss some potential issues involved in
diagnosing and treating this patient along with various recommendations included in your treatment plan: Introduction to problem/issue,
Background/Contributing Factors , Solutions, Recommendations, References (title page doesn’t count)
If you discuss using a medication you must address major side effects vs benefits vs risks associated with it. (This includes if there are monitoring labs
required while taking it). If you are discussing a diagnosis you need to list the criteria for that diagnosis.
Choose an issue related to psychiatry and compose a 5-7 minute powerpoint with voiceover. Make sure that the overall appearance of the powerpoint is done
to look professional.
Be sure to include a brief list of criteria for the diagnosis you are addressing, an introduction to the problem or issue, and some recommendations for
treatment. Make sure to use evidence based research in your references for the powerpoint presentation (Due at the end of week 5 at 1159 PM EST)
These may be beneficial to add to your knowledge base as you enter in to practice in psychiatry.
