Week 11: Therapy for Clients With Comorbid Conditions

Week 11: Therapy for Clients With Comorbid Conditions

As a psychiatric mental health nurse
practitioner, you will frequently work with clients who have comorbid
conditions. For instance, you may treat a 19-year-old male with Down
syndrome and increasing violent behaviors; a middle-aged female with
schizophrenia, diabetes, and poor renal function; or an older adult with
a mental disorder, stage I Alzheimer’s disease, and chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease (COPD). In cases like these, you must draw from
foundational knowledge of pathophysiology and collaborate with other
healthcare providers to ensure optimal safely and efficacy of
psychopharmacological therapies for clients.

This
week, as you study therapy for patients with comorbid conditions, you
examine psychopharmacologic approaches to treatment for clients across
the lifespan.
