Choose one diagnosis from the Sleep/Wake Disorders group

  • American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (5th ed.). American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.

    • Scan Pages 361-422
    • Instructions:
    • Instrument/ Tool criteria: For each assessment, you are tasked with selecting, you will identify an instrument and:
      1. List what DSM diagnosis the tool/instrument is used for.
      2. Identify an assessment/diagnosis instrument.
      3. Appraise a scholarly, peer-reviewed article
        that addresses the use of the instrument to support your choice as an
        evidence-based instrument for practice.
      4. Evaluate the instrument’s appropriateness for
        diagnosing the condition it is designed to assess or if the developers
        of the instrument reported that the instrument is only part of a
        comprehensive assessment for the disorder.
      5. Describe whether or not the instrument can be
        used to measure patient response to therapy/treatment or if it is
        strictly for assessment and diagnosis.
      6. Discuss the psychometrics/scoring of the instrument, including reliability and validity.
      7. Discuss any limitations associated with the use of the instrument.
      8. Include a link to view the assessment if possible.

      Use the following template in completing
      your portfolio assignments. Your information can be in a bulleted format
      or just a couple of sentences for each criterion listed
      above. However, you must use APA citations.  You are NOT required to
      write this in a paper format.  Turn in one document for each week’s
      topics.  (However, create a file on your desktop to compile your
      portfolio as you move through the term.)  This will ensure you can have
      easy access to show the full portfolio and once you begin clinicals and
      practice. Throughout the program, you will continue to add to the
      portfolio in each course.
