PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW4 REFERENCESZERO PLAGIARISMTopic: Minor Neurocognitive DisorderNeurocognitive disorders (NCD) such as delirium, dementia, and amnestic disorders are more prevalent in older adults. As the population ages and as life expectancy in the United States continues to increase, the incidence of these disorders will continue to increase. Cognitive functioning such as memory, language, orientation, judgment, and problem solving are affected in clients with NCDs. Caring for someone with a neurocognitive disorder is not only challenging for the clinician, but also stressful for the family. The PMHNP needs to consider not only the client but also the “family as client.” Collaboration with primary care providers and specialty providers is essential. Anticipatory guidance also becomes extremely important.In this Discussion, you will integrate several sources of knowledge specific to NCDs as you discuss evidenced-based therapies used to treat these disorders.Learning ObjectivesStudents will:Analyze diagnostic criteria for neurocognitive disordersAnalyze evidence-based psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic treatment for neurocognitive disordersEvaluate benefits and risks of neurocognitive therapiesCompare differential diagnostic features of neurocognitive disordersTo prepare for this Discussion:By Day 5 of Week 7, your Instructor will have assigned you a neurocognitive disorder, which will be the focus for your initial post for this Discussion.Review the Learning Resources.By Day 3Post:Explain the diagnostic criteria for your assigned neurocognitive disorder.Explain the evidenced-based psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic treatment for your assigned neurocognitive disorder.Identify the risks of different types of therapy and explain how the benefits of the therapy that might be achieved might outweigh the risks.Support your rationale with references to the Learning Resources or other academic resource.
