Case Formulation

Assessment 2 Case Formulation
Assessment 2 Template Must Be Used. 

This task is about learning how to undertake a case formulation. The purpose is to understand the consumer’s story as well as the static and dynamic risks and protective factors and, clinical problems. The patient maybe receiving  inpatient care with plan to transfer care or a community patient to plan care . 

The template for the case formulation must be used. 
The rubric for marking is matched to each response on the template. 
The case will be selected in Assessment 1 Blog 2. The marker will give you feedback whether the case selected is sufficiently robust for the tasks undertaken in this assessment and assessment 3. The marker will approve you case to enable you to proceed to assessments 2 and 3. This is important ensure the case selected is robust enough to achieve the course learning outcomes. 
Please feel free to contact the course coordinator as required. 
Work through all the Modules in order to prepare the assessment.  Remember to ask questions, work through the macro modules and the module activities to practise for assessment preparation and to test your learning.
Remember there are a number of readings and resources to respond to the large cohort of students from a multitude of clinical contexts, disciplines and learning needs. Your task at this post graduate level is to select the readings and resources our require. You may download some to read after the course. 
Remember to participate in the collaborate sessions to ask questions, hear further learning and listen to colleague comments/questions. The sessions are recorded and can be listened to afterwards (asynchronously). 
You can complete the template without doing any work but what would that achieve maybe a pass, but little learning.  I hope you enjoy the learning. 
Prepare the case formulation as per the template. Remember to ask questions of your course coordinator early in the learning but any time is good too.
