Step 1:  For this assignment, students will create a video presentation performing a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation of a school-aged child.  You are expected to choose a child and an adult to interview.  The child and parent are not required to be actual clinic patients, but merely someone who has agreed to perform the interview with you.  You will be graded on your interview skills when interviewing the persons performing as an infant or toddler and a parent.  You are expected to ask the patient and the parent questions the same way you do with your patients in the clinic.  Both should be available virtually or in person to answer questions. You may use a Zoom/video call to assess the simulated patient if you do not have a child/parent you can assess face to face.
I expect that you will conduct a mental status exam during the interview.  If you don’t ask it or explain how you observed it, then don’t document it. Only the information asked in the video will be used for grading.
Use the rubric as a guide for collecting data.  Don’t miss points because something was not addressed.
Step 2:  Each student will create a focused SOAP note or PowerPoint presentation. SOAP is an acronym that stands for Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan. The comprehensive psychiatric SOAP note or PowerPoint is to be written using the attached template below.  Do not provide a voiceover or video for the PowerPoint.  Only the information asked in the video will be used for grading. 
S =
Subjective data: Patient’s Chief Complaint (CC);  History of the Present Illness (HPI)/ Demographics; History of the Present Illness (HPI) that includes the presenting problem and the 8 dimensions of the problem (OLDCARTS or PQRST); Review of Systems (ROS).  Click hereLinks to an external site. for more information

Reminder:  It is important that you complete this assessment using your critical thinking skills. You are expected to synthesize your clinical assessment, formulate a psychiatric diagnosis, and develop a treatment plan independently. It is not acceptable to document “my preceptor made this diagnosis.”  An example of the appropriate descriptors of the clinical evaluation is listed below.  It is not acceptable to document “within normal limits.”
