You have been asked to develop a consumer treatment plan with evidence based literature to support the approach chosen. Provide at least 3 identified nursing diagnoses, any specialised assessment/s, evaluation outcomes and recommendations for treatment for one of the case studies examined this semester. A person diagnosed with an eating disorder, personality disorder, somatoform disorder, dual diagnosis or dual disability. The treatment recommendations need to involve biological, psychological and social aspects. The template for the plan needs to include a description of the case study (not included in the word count), the treatment setting (not included in the word count) and the role of the nurse. Use evidence to support the treatment approach and the role of the nurse. The assignment does not have to be in an essay format, however the evidence that supports the plan needs to be detailed in a paragraph format and referenced accordingly.

The template for the assessment is provided as an attachment.
