Patients and/or their families may ask what it means to have a particular diagnosis and why specific drug classes are recommended for treatment. The response patients receive frequently determines the course of treatment they agree to pursue. As clinicians, it is important to break down information into pieces patients are able to understand.
In this assignment, you will practice explaining the neurobiology of a disorder (Major Depressive Disorder) to a hypothetical patient or a patient’s family member. You will utilize resources for evidence-based practice. In your patient briefing explain potential contributing factors (genetic, environment, situation) to the disorder. Discuss key neurotransmitters involved and any brain structure changes that may be present. Remember, your "audience" (the patient and/or their family) likely has little to no medical knowledge, so this explanation should be simplified.
