CSAT for Professional Performance Evaluation- Diagnosis and Disposition using the Cultural Formulation Interview
Welcome to the CSAT for Professional Performance Evaluation- Diagnosis and Disposition using the Cultural Formulation Interview!
This learning tool teaches clinicians current standards for culturally informed psychiatric interviewing. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th Edition and 5th Edition, Text Revision (DSM5 TR) includes an Outline for Cultural Formulation (OCF) and a Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI) which aims to improve culturally sensitive diagnosis and treatment by focusing clinical attention on the patient's perspective and social context. Please view the interview with the patient Lorena and her mother and answer the questions using the resources provided.
There is no time limit. You may watch and re-watch if you wish as you respond to these questions:
- Given the information available in the interview, please provide a differential diagnosis (in list form).
- Recognizing that you have a limited amount of information from this video, please provide a brief rationale for either an outpatient or inpatient level of care (choose one or the other; this measure is assessing your rationale, not your choice).
Please keep your responses brief. There is a 75-word limit for each response.
