Merchandise Description

Author: Donna C. Lougheed, MD, FRCPC

Description:

What is a biopsychocial model of assessment? What are its advantages for staff and clients? How does the template used by DDCOT help staff understand complex etiologies and the origins of psychiatric diagnoses, as well as develop appropriate and helpful treatment recommendations? Our multidisciplinary team, including nurses, social workers, occupational therapist, and speech and language therapists, has been using and refining this assessment template over the past six years in our work with the spectrum of problems experienced by developmentally delayed adults in community settings.

Produced in 2008
