Re: Topic 8 DQ 2 (Obj. 8.2): How would you prepare a client for discharge?
Professor: Rosa, your post if about discharging a patient from a hospital. How is discharging a client from outpatient services different? Explain.
Re: Topic 8 DQ 2 (Obj. 8.2)
According to Schweitzer and Rubin (2015), a clinician begins preparing the client for discharge at the onset of the initial session. It is very important that clinicians understand the discharge process to not cause any harm to the client. I would utilize SNAPS (Strengths, Needs, Abilities, and Preferences) with the client and assist with resources that would benefit the client. The author implied that clinicians can regularly observe the client’s behavior, affective state, mood, and interpersonal relationships. Clinicians can prepare clients for discharge by making sure the client agrees with the treatment plan, evaluate progress throughout treatment, working through resistance, anger, denial, and how to resolve future issues. Discussions leading to discharge should address problem-solving, refusal skills, positive supports, medical or mental health referrals, medication management, self-care, stability, employment, housing, and making sure basic needs will be met. Clinicians should encourage the client to ask questions and address concerns to prevent feelings of abandonment. As the clinician implement discharge preparation throughout treatment, the client may resolve or develop new issues to address.
