For this discussion, you will pick one of the cases listed in the Week 5 Discussion – Case Studies document, and take on the role of the clinician.
In your initial post,
Identify the patient’s symptoms and the available demographic and historical data.
Discuss your differential diagnosis and provide a thorough basis for any diagnoses you have included.
Determine what (if any) additional testing you would order and how this would be helpful in clarifying the diagnosis.
Finally, explain recommendations for the patient/family for ongoing functioning (social, occupational and academic, if applicable).
You must use a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles in your discussion to support your diagnostic conclusions.
To assist you with your research consider using the library’s Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) tip sheet.
