Using the brief text description below, prepare a script you could use to call the mock client’s pediatrician for a 10-minute conversation. To prepare, consider the following:
What facts do you need to communicate to the doctor?
What will the doctor likely want to know from you?
What will you want to be sure to tell the doctor about your diagnosis of him having ADHD and treatment plan for family?
You diagnose that he should be placed on medication and pediatricians nurse prescribe the diagnosis level
text description: Your client is an 8-year-old male whose parents are concerned might have ADHD. He is the middle child of three boys. You have met the parents and the child in your initial sessions. At this point, you have had only three sessions with the family. Your client says he has lots of friends, he hates school because it’s boring, and his parents yell at him too much!
Write a mock transcript of an imaginary phone call between you and the client’s physician. In your mock discussion, include information you would provide to the doctor about your assessment, treatment plan, and orientation to treating ADHD; include the doctor’s questions or responses to the information you provide. Also, include questions you would ask the doctor, and the doctor’s responses.
