Signature Assignment: Psychopharmacology Case Presentation

Total Points: 300

CLOs 1-7

Overview

The Psychopharmacology Case Presentation is a scholarly inquiry into assembling essential elements of a new DNP graduate to

initiate psychopharmacology into practice optimally.

The Psychopharmacology Case Presentation will be the Signature Assignment in the School of Nursing and Health

Professions evaluation system. A description of the assignment and its grading rubric are provided. This assignment is the

Signature Assignment and is due week 7 of the course. The Psychopharmacology Case Presentation provides a student with an

opportunity to operationalize and synthesize a blending of therapeutic approaches with psychopharmacology and demonstrate the

ability to understand when a certain medication is appropriate and when it is not. There will be two case presentations submitted

to Live Text. These presentations will be submitted via voiceover PowerPoint or a video platform such as YouTube or Vimeo.

Directions

The following will be expected of each student: Identify 1 psychotropic medication from the list posted in Blackboard (cannot use the

same medication that you used for the teaching tool assignment). Develop (1) one case study that shows how, why and when you would

use this medication and (1) one that shows how, why and when you would NOT use this medication. You may use real or fabricated

patients for these studies. Each case summary will include a full psychiatric initial evaluation of the patient, a summary of their current

condition and treatments used previously. You must justify your decision about the use or non-use of the medication with evidence-based

research. Provide information on your chosen medication prior to the case studies. Briefly and succinctly, tell why it is appropriate or not

appropriate to use the chosen medication at the conclusion of the case study. Demonstrate how each of the patient’s medications assist in

their treatment plan. Provide a discussion of the expected overall encounter with the sample patient including potential barriers/issues that

you might anticipate when working with the clients and explaining why or why not you have chosen or ruled out this medication for

them. Provide an example of how culture and diversity enter into your decision making process for your patient or possible adaptations

that may be required. Provide a summary of conclusions and 3 statements of what you learned from this exercise. The power point/video

should be no longer than 10 minutes, submitted in a timely manner and contain 2 case studies. References as necessary.
