Assignment: Clinical Hour and
Patient Logs

Record your clinical hours and patient
encounters
in Meditrek by Day 7.

Introduction
There is a strong likelihood that you will encounter both children/adolescents and adults at
your practicum site who suffer from mood disorders. Depressive disorders, for instance,
affect up to 3 percent of children and 8 percent of adolescents (Thapar et al., 2015). This
increases in adulthood to a lifetime prevalence of up to 25% in women and 12% in men
(Wang et al., 2017). Based on your prior work, you may have more experience working
with adults. If this is the case, it is important to recognize that while mood disorders may
appear across the lifespan, even in young children, the symptoms children and adolescents
experience may be different from those present in adults. Seek out information from your
current and prior Learning Resources and from your Preceptor to help guide your
diagnosis of these disorders in different age groups.
This week, you review resources on assessing, diagnosing, and treating mood disorders
across the lifespan. You also continue to record your clinical hours and patient encounters
in Meditrek.
