Common Mental Health Problems Case Scenarios by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) Clinical Guidelines
Brand new and paoerback.
Clinical case scenarios are an educational resource that can be used for individual or group learning. They have been developed to improve the identification, assessment and treatment of common mental health problems such as anxiety or depression within primary care. They illustrate how the recommendations from ‘Common mental health disorders: identification and pathways to care’ (CG123) can be applied to the care of people presenting in primary care. Each scenario has been written by a different contributor with experience in this field, and reflects the different contributors’ styles.The scenarios are available in two formats: this PowerPoint version which can be used for group learning, and a PDF version which can be used for individual learning. These slides could be added to the standard NICE slide set that was developed to support the Common mental health disorders guideline, which provides an overview of the recommendations and background on potential costs and savings from putting the guidance into practice locally. The slide set can be found on the CG123 guideline page. Please note: the PDF version of the scenarios includes a further three case studies, additional background information and copies of tools that can help support GPs when establishing a diagnosis of a common mental health problem. It may be helpful to print a copy of the full PDF document for reference when using these slides in a learning or development session.
