I'm forming a care plan for a psych patient and I'm having trouble with the "related to". Obviously I can't say "r/t autism". Anyone want to help?
Here's the info pertinent to this dx:
20 yr old male, Bipolar, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, Developmentally Delayed Disorder. Has poor sense of personal space/boundaries. Brushes up against staff. Is generally intrusive, interrupting conversations with often strange comments like "I can scratch my nose with my foot" (and then proceeds to do so). Flat affect, wanders away when you're talking to him, generally odd.
I have 2 other dx done, "impaired social interaction" is the 3rd priority. I've been looking through care plan books and I can't find any r/t that really fits. I think his social behaviors are characteristic of autism/aspergers. So how can I say that without mentioning the medical dx?
Here are some things that the care plan books list as r/t: communication barriers, deficit about ways to enhance mutuality (e.g. knowledge, skills), disturbed thought process, self-concept disturbance, lack of social skills, alienation from others, impulse control, difficulty adhering to conventional social behaviors.
Do you think any of those fit? Any other suggestions?
Impaired social interaction r/t ????
