DQ 1: Discuss the importance of informed consent in psychiatric-mental health treatment.

NU673-7D Unit 15 DQ 1

Discussion Prompt

Ms. Smith is a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner working in an outpatient psychiatric clinic.  She is seeing Dale Knox, a 32-years old man for a psychiatric evaluation for the first time. Dale is currently separated from his wife, Sofie.  Dale and Sodie have been married for years.  Dale has fully completed all of his pre-evaluation paperwork and he has signed the consent for treatment.  During the psychiatric evaluation, Ms. Smith observes that Dale is distraught, tearful and verbalizing feelings of worthlessness and no motivation for life in general.  He states directly that he is going to kill his wife and then kill himself tonight when she returns home from work because he can’t stand the thought of being divorced and he knows she is preparing to leave him. Mr. Knox states he has a handgun in his car and has bought additional ammunition. 

Answer the following questions based on the case presentation: 

  1. Discuss the importance of informed consent in psychiatric-mental health treatment. 
  2. Would Mr. Knox meet the criteria for involuntary commitment, explain why or why not, and then discuss the involuntary commitment process for your state and if PMHNP is able to involuntarily commit a patient the state where you practice? 
  3. Should the PMHNP notify Mrs. Knox about her husband’s threat to kill her, or should the PMHNP protect the confidentiality of Mr. Knox treatment? 
  4. What additional resources should you consider in this case for help for the patient and his family? 
  5. What is the prevalence of suicide-related to someone who has a plan and the means?  Are there any other criteria that this patient meets that places him in a higher risk category for carrying out suicide? 

Responses need to address all components of the question, demonstrate critical thinking and analysis and include peer-reviewed journal evidence to support the student’s position.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with in-text citations and corresponding references in APA format.

Please review the rubric to ensure that your response meets the criteria.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.

Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.

One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.

I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.

In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.

Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).

Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).

Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.

I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.

As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.

It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.

Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.

Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?

Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.

Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.

If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.

I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.

As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:

Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.

Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
