Word counts

It is an important academic and practical skill to be able to communicate succinctly. It is expected that students will adhere to the word limits and not exceed the prescribed limit by more than 2,500 words (Two 1,250-word case studies) including in-text citations and the reference list. Except in previously approved circumstances, appendices should not be included to accommodate extra words. All text included in the assessment will be included in the word count (as determined by Turnitin).

Assessment: Case Study (ANALYSIS)

Word limit; 2,500 words (Two 1,250-word case studies)


Theory is useful as an underpinning to care for consumers, but it’s important to be able to move the theory into action. In these two case studies, you will have the opportunity to show you can take what you have learned and apply it to real-world scenarios.

Learning outcomes

This assessment task is aligned to the following learning outcomes:

2. Critically analyse the impacts of pharmacological treatments in mental health on the physical health status of consumers

3. Design and justify nutrition and exercise-based interventions for inclusion within mental health treatment and wellness and prevention plans

4. Design assessment and care planning practices to achieve helpful responses to the sexual health needs of consumers

5. Create strategies to effectively support the mental health needs of those who are experiencing eating disorders

Assessment details

Analyse two case studies provided in the appendix and create a holistic physical wellbeing assessment and intervention package in response to the provided clinical scenarios which is anticipated to address the presenting problems. Each package must be supported by the best available evidence. The package/plan must also be designed with specific reference to overcoming obstacles which might inhibit the person from achieving the best possible outcomes.

Each case scenario should be approximately 1000 words (allowing further room for references),

For each scenario:

1. Outline the critical biological, psychological, sexual and social health issues that need to be addressed.

2. Outline a plan to holistically address/resolve the health problems, providing reference to the research evidence and authoritative guidelines as appropriate.

3. Recommend referrals to allied health or other health service providers, if appropriate, and outline (based on research evidence or guidelines) how those professionals might respond

4. Recommend one or more community resources or agencies which the person might access to assist them in improving their health.

5. Write a brief narrative completing the scenario, describing how you anticipate the problems will be resolved (including time frames).

The scenarios are located in Appendix A of this document.

Submission format

Please submit your case studies as One Word document labeling each case study with a reference list at the conclusion.
