- Introduce a fictitious patient with a disease or disorder based on your assigned group topic. Must specifically address the disease as it relates to one of the following populations: infants, toddlers, school-aged children, adolescents, adults, or the elderly.
- Definition of the disease or disorder
- Epidemiology of the disease or disorder
- Pathophysiology of the disease/disorder to the cellular level.
- Including genetics/genomics, neurotransmitters, and neurobiology of this specific disorder.
- Clinical features of the disease or disorder
- History of the patient’s problems

- Psychiatric findings (Using DSM5-TR diagnosis only.)
- Treatment recommendations according to the US clinical guidelines.
- Patient education for management and anticipatory guidance.
- Non-pharmaceutical, cultural, and spiritual considerations must be addressed.
- Presentation is original work and logically organized.
- Record the project with whatever software works best for you, upload it to Studio, and submit the project using Canvas Studio.
- Followed 7th Edition APA formatting including citation of references.
- Powerpoint presentations with 10-15 slides were clear and easy to read with no less than 16-point font. Speaker notes expanded upon and clarified content on the slides.
- Incorporate a minimum of 4 current (published within last five years) scholarly journal articles or primary legal sources (statutes, court opinions) within your work. Journal articles and books should be referenced according to APA style (the library has a copy of the APA Manual).
- Complete and submit the PowerPoint by 11:59 PM ET Sunday
- Late work policies, expectations regarding proper citations, acceptable means of responding to peer feedback, and other expectations are graded at the discretion of the instructor.
- You can expect feedback from the instructor within 48 to 72 hours from the Sunday due date.
