    Psychiatry Patient Screenings

    Does anyone use any of these? I find it useful with my patients to have for 2 reasons: 1- It gives you a number for future reference, to use as a base line for tracking patient progress. 2- Something objective in the patient's own hand to scan into the record for future reference. If anyone is interested I have about 15 different ones I use. I also made short MACROS for pasting into the PE section when having the patient fill one out. Bonus: while the patient is filling out the assessment, I update the EMR, check the PMP and look at the intake documents. Tomorrow I am posting a dilemma that I have been struggling with.... Stay tuned and please comment.. Thanks.
  2. How to deal with excessive TEST ANXIETY I am a high stress / high anxiety test taker. I took and passed the PANRE in 8/2014. Here is some of the research I did to help deal with the stress. A study in the Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment compared thirty five university students with ADHD and one hundred and eighty five typical peers on measures of speed, test anxiety, reading comprehension, vocabulary, test taking skills and time management. Surprisingly there was no significant differences between students with and without ADHD outside test anxiety. There was significant differences with anxiety during, and perceptions of, test taking. It appears that students with ADHD perform similarly to peers on timed reading tests, although they perception of performance was less and worried significantly about their performance. The take home message is that if you suffer from test taking anxiety it is important not to label yourself, drop the negative thoughts. The label is a cognitive disorder and will do more harm than good. Strategies for overcoming test anxiety. 1. Be prepared i.e. Joe’s @PABoardReview.org or other accredited test prep. programs, PANCE/PANRE review books. 2. Practice test questions in duration and complexity that mimic the PANCE/PANRE 3. Meditation. The PA Program @Touro University Nevada teach their students Koru “Jon Kabat-Zinn” University of Mass Mindfulness for stress relief.

    PANCE Anxiety

    I just graduated and will be taking my PANCE Jan 10th. I signed up for the Hippo review back in september an studied that along my last semester board review/clinical therapeutics class. I also use Comprehensive review books, old PACKRATS, and exam master to study. I have taken two NCCPA practice tests..which gave me a good idea how they may ask questions (i'm hoping). I scored mostly in the green with some areas in red. However, when i took a second exam (on the same day) things I scored totally in red were in the green the next exam. For example, psych. I also write out concepts I have trouble remembering, and do notecards as well. After reading posts on here, and many people stating all of their questions came our of left field, it is causing me extreme anxiety. I already have test anxiety and these posts aren't helping. :-/ I guess I need a little pick-me-up. I've been on the PA forum now for 2+ years before I even started for PA school..and have always loved the advice. Any advice would be much appreciated right now.
  5. I am currently in my final year of classes and will go on my clinical rotations in May. I had a mental illness and severe anxiety and depression which led me to steal as a coping mechanism. I was caught and will have a misdeamor of theft on my criminal backround check that my school will run on me before I can start my rotations. I am currently in therapy and plan to make a full recovery to not let this happen again. I am afraid I will not be able to go on my clinical rotations with this now on my background which will also prevent me from graduating the PA program. Does anyone have any expierence or advice for me? I am currently in the pretrial part and may get a diversion but will not know until Feb. which would drop the charges but still be on my record.

    Took PANCE and freaking out

    Hi everyone. I took the PANCE this week and cannot handle the post-test anxiety. So when I take tests, I always write down the questions that I don't 100% know the answer, so that I can go back. I did that when taking the PANCE and I feel like I absolutely knew around 60% (although towards the end I was less than diligent in doing this since I was frickin exhausted). The rest ranged from being between two answers and not knowing what the heck the question was even talking about, so I figure that hopefully I got at least 70%, most likely more - but while that would make me feel okay for a school test, it means nothing for the PANCE. Because of the different test difficulties, the ridiculous way they score it, and how you're graded against others, I have no idea how I did and am freaking out. I've seen people on here get 70% and still fail. I also heard that scores are released every Thursday, but classmates took it last week and still haven't heard back. I pray I find out tomorrow, not only for my sake, but also my roommate's! I have a job lined up and am getting married soon - I need to pass so that I keep my job and actually have an income again! Anyone else freaking out or with words of advice for dealing with this? Thanks.

    Ants in my PANCE

    So I took the PANCE on Monday 8/30. My score should be available tomorrow. I'm anxious about it and I was hoping I could get a little feedback/support. When I finished the test, I didn't feel good about it, and I didn't feel bad about it. Looking back, I feel there's no way I failed it, but I'm still freaking out. Does everyone else feel like this? I know there's nothing to worry about; I did very well in school. I feel like my program prepared us. I used ExamMaster, the new AAPA/PAEA book and Lange yellow book. Our program also had a week of board reviews (taught by us) just before graduation (8/21). I've heard everyone feels this way! Is that true?
