1. What is your primary (one) diagnosis for this patient at this time? (support the decision for your diagnosis with pertinent positives and negatives from the case)
2. Identify the corresponding ICD-10 code.
3. Provide a treatment plan for this patient’s primary diagnosis which includes:
- Any additional testing necessary for this particular diagnosis*
- Patient education
4. Provide an active problem list for this patient based on the information given in the case.
5. Are there any changes that you would also make to this patientâ€™s overall treatment plan at this time? Must provide an EBM argument for each treatment or testing decision.
6. Provide an appropriate F/U plan.
*If part of the plan does not warrant an action, you must explain why. ALL medication and testing decisions (or decisions not to treat with medication or additional testing) MUST be supported with an evidence-based medicine (EBM) argument. Over-the-counter (OTC) and RXs must be written in full as if handing a script to the patient in the office.
