mental health assessment
- 0Mar 17, '08 by bitfitHi,
I am a nursing student and I need help conducting a mental health assessment, if anyone could give me a brief sample of a therapeutic dialogue for mental health assessment between the nurse and a schizophrenic patient, I am not sure how to ask the questions re: Appearance, Behaviour, and Cognition.
Any help would be appreciated,
