Welcome to Week 9. This week we will review the “Assessment of Cognition and the Neurologic System”. You have a case study due this week on Assessing Neurologic Symptoms. I have assigned the case studies below. You will see the corresponding case study number next to your name. For this assignment you will create a focused/episodic note on your assigned case study. You will create all the missing information that is needed to develop the SOAP note. Then provide at least 5 differential diagnoses with rationales for each diagnosis.
You also have your final DCE which is a Head-to-Toe Comprehensive Physical Exam due this week. As per the syllabus and rubric, you must pass this assignment with a combined score of 80 or better (lab pass & documentation template) to pass the course. So please do not leave a section unanswered. Remember the physical exam goes under the objective section and the diagnoses are under the assessment section. If you are confused, please reach out to me. Please thoroughly document this comprehensive visit. If you attempt to use the SOAP format, be sure to include everything in each section. But I advise you to use the template provided to make sure you do not miss a section.
Please do not add any mnemonics, bullet points or write your entire note in bold. Points will be taken off if you continue to do this. Also do not write within normal limits in your physical exam or review of systems. You should write out the symptoms (ROS) or exam findings (Physical Exam).
We are nearing the end of the course. I am looking forward to everyone finishing strong. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email. If you have any missing assignments from week 7 or 8, please complete them now.
Have a great week!
Case Studies
Case Study 1: Facial Droop
22 year old african american female looks in the mirror and notices the left side of her mouth is slanted when she smiles. She notes she has had some headache off and on a few days. Her taste has decreased as well when she started brushing her teeth. CASE STUDY ASSIGNMENT: ASSESSING NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS
Imagine not being able to form new memories. This is the reality patients with anterograde amnesia face. Although this form of amnesia is rare, it can result from severe brain trauma. Anterograde amnesia demonstrates just how impactful brain disorders can be to a patient’s quality of living. Accurately assessing neurological symptoms is a complex process that involves the analysis of many factors.
In this Case Study Assignment, you will consider case studies that describe abnormal findings in patients seen in a clinical setting.

TO PREPARE
By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to a specific case study for this Case Study Assignment. Please see the “Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your assignment from your Instructor.
Also, your Case Study Assignment should be in the Episodic/Focused SOAP Note format rather than the traditional narrative style format. Refer to Chapter 2 of the Sullivan text and the Episodic/Focused SOAP Template in the Week 5 Learning Resources for guidance. Remember that all Episodic/Focused SOAP notes have specific data included in every patient case.
With regard to the case study you were assigned:
Review this week’s Learning Resources, and consider the insights they provide about the case study.
Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study you were assigned.
Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. How would the results be used to make a diagnosis?
Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.
THE CASE STUDY ASSIGNMENT
Use the Episodic/Focused SOAP Template and create an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case study to which you were assigned using the episodic/focused note template provided in the Week 5 resources. Provide evidence from the literature to support diagnostic tests that would be appropriate for each case. List five different possible conditions for the patient’s differential diagnosis, and justify why you selected each. BY DAY 6 OF WEEK 9
