Assignment: Biopsychosocial history
The aim of this assignment is to help you to begin to use your professional and clinical judgement and to think like nurses working in mental health settings and/or in relation to the mental health needs of people regardless of the setting. In order to achieve this aim, everyone will be assigned a case scenario involving a person who is experiencing difficulties relating to one of the various disorders commonly encountered in clinical practice.
This is an individual assignment of 1,800 words in two parts, each with several steps. Follow the steps for each part carefully.
Your assignment will demonstrate a sound grasp of the following as they relate to the person in your case scenario and include:
a Mental Status Examination(MSE)
a clinical formulation including biopsychosocial history and your own MSE observations leading to the clinical formulation
a nursing orientated handover
use of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to identity and prioritise the person’s needs
recognising and responding to the mental health needs of the identified person by identifying best practice nursing interventions
how to engage a person in a therapeutic relationship
the application of cultural safety
the application of the recovery model/philosophy
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
