You are being asked to explore treatment of a clients condition/disease ((Atopic dermatitis)) from the perspective of three different health care disciplines (e.g. a GP, a physiotherapist and a naturopath). You will need to evaluate how beneficial it may be for the client to access three different disciplines for treatment, but also explore the difficulties that may arise from this.
The case study needs to reflect on:
The nature of the health care disciplines
Why different professional services are desirable in client care
What difficulties might be experienced
The perceived benefits of integration for clients
Case studies are organised into sections with headings. The headings should be based on your assessment question.
Step 1: Highlight the key words in the assessment question.
Step 2: Divide 1500 words into how many paragraphs you will need (approx. 7-8 paragraphs, so 5-6 body paragraphs plus introduction and conclusion).
Content under heading
Summary (1 paragraph)
Provide some background information about the client and his/her condition/disease.
Main heading: Health care disciplines
3 subheadings underneath: (names of disciplines)
Define each discipline in its own paragraph. What is it? How is it used to treat clients?
Desirability of different services
Discuss why it is desirable to have different health care disciplines, as opposed to just one type of treatment for all conditions.
Discuss the potential difficulties that may arise when a client is being treated from three different perspectives.
Discuss the potential benefits when a client is being treated from three different perspectives.
Be sure not to include any new information in the conclusion. Therefore, you do not include referencing either.
Appropriate for 1500 words. 8 references as a minimum to fulfil the basic referencing requirements. Endeavour to use peer-reviewed journal articles available to you on other sources such as
