Scientific Method of law

Scientific Method of law

Dear Students: I didn’t write the course; I was just given the opportunity to teach it this semester for the first time, so I’m trying to figure it out, too. I’ve never had students turn in a video before, so I’m not sure what the videos are going to look like. I’m not sure exactly what the originator of this course had in mind with this video assignment– but since I’m the teacher now, I guess I get to decide. The way I read it, you’re supposed to create a video in which the characters, professional geologists or hydrologists, approach a problem to solve, and do so utilizing the steps of the scientific method. Here’s what I say. Your team of professional geologists can consist of just one team member– yourself. The problem you need to attack, just make something up. For example, here’s a possible real-world scenario. There’s a push to make the Gila River corridor around Gila Bend into a new national park, called Great Bend in the Gila National Park. Lets just say that the promoters want a geological survey of the area done. Google up “doing a geological survey,” see what’s involved, and, using your smartphone, record yourself for 2-3 minutes planning out the steps you’ll take to do a geologic survey of this newly proposed national park. Sounds good? Lets keep this as simple and uncomplicated as possible.  Create a 3-5 minute video where your characters have to utilize the scientific method to solve a problem they come across. Include the following information:

  1. Steps of the scientific method.
  2. Scientific Method of lawBrief description of each step in the scientific method.
  3. Deductive versus inductive reasoning.
  4. Differences between hypothesis, theory, and law.
  5. Provide real examples of hypothesis, theory, and law.

Note

APA style is not required, but solid academic tone is expected.

Mood Disorders in Adults

 Mood Disorders in Adults

 I am finally doing everything right. I stayed up all night studying for my final exams and even managed to clean out my closet and order a whole new bedroom from the internet. I know I will ace all my exams. Nothing can go wrong like they did a few months ago. I was so low and was sleeping all the time. I did not think I would ever be happy again, but now I know I can do anything.

 Assignment: Assessing, Diagnosing, and Treating Adults with Mood Disorders

It is important for the PMHNP to have a comprehensive understanding of mood disorders in order to assess and accurately formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan for patients presenting with these disorders. Mood disorders may be diagnosed when a patient’s emotional state meets the diagnostic criteria for severity, functional impact, and length of time. Those with a mood disorder may find that their emotions interfere with work, relationships, or other parts of their lives that impact daily functioning. Mood disorders may also lead to substance abuse or suicidal thoughts or behaviors, and although they are not likely to go away on their own, they can be managed with an effective treatment plan and understanding of how to manage symptoms.

In this Assignment you will assess, diagnose, and devise a treatment plan for a patient in a case study who is presenting with a mood disorder.

To Prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources. Consider the insights they provide about assessing, diagnosing, and treating mood disorders.
  • Review the Focused SOAP Note template, which you will use to complete this Assignment. There is also a Focused SOAP Note Exemplar provided as a guide for Assignment expectations.
  • Review the video, Case Study: Petunia Park. You will use this case as the basis of this Assignment. In this video, a Walden faculty member is assessing a mock patient. The patient will be represented onscreen as an avatar.
  • Consider what history would be necessary to collect from this patient.
  • Consider what interview questions you would need to ask this patient.
  • Consider patient diagnostics missing from the video:

Provider Review outside of interview:

Temp 98.2  Pulse  90 Respiration 18  B/P  138/88

Laboratory Data Available: Urine drug and alcohol screen negative.  CBC within normal ranges, CMP within normal ranges. Lipid panel within normal ranges. Prolactin Level 8; TSH 6.3 (H)

The Assignment

Develop a Focused SOAP Note, including your differential diagnosis and critical-thinking process to formulate a primary diagnosis. Incorporate the following into your responses in the template:

  • Subjective: What details did the patient provide regarding their chief complaint and symptomatology to derive your differential diagnosis? What is the duration and severity of their symptoms? How are their symptoms impacting their functioning in life?
  • Objective: What observations did you make during the psychiatric assessment?
  • Assessment: Discuss the patient’s mental status examination results. What were your differential diagnoses? Provide a minimum of three possible diagnoses with supporting evidence, listed in order from highest to lowest priority. Compare the DSM-5-TR diagnostic criteria for each differential diagnosis and explain what DSM-5 criteria rules out the differential diagnosis to find an accurate diagnosis. Explain the critical-thinking process that led you to the primary diagnosis you selected. Include pertinent positives and pertinent negatives for the specific patient case.
  • Plan: What is your plan for psychotherapy? What is 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 incorporate one health promotion activity and one patient education strategy.
  • Reflection notes: Reflect on this case. Discuss what you learned and what you might do differently. Also include in your reflection a discussion related to legal/ethical considerations (demonstrate critical thinking beyond confidentiality and consent for treatment!), social determinates of health, health promotion, and disease prevention that takes into consideration patient factors (such as age, ethnic group, etc.), PMH, and other risk factors (e.g., socioeconomic, cultural background, etc.).
