About The Course:

This Suicidal Ideation patient assessment module is built on the AI-Humans platform. It uses generalized AI powered by large language model. In this open scenario users can practice their skillsets in training and assessment modes. Users are free to ask the virtual human any question from any subject and get an intelligible response. 

While the user is free to ask any question, the system does provide a set of questions in the training mode that can serve as clues. The user may or may not ask those specific questions. In the assessment mode, the users are required to ask the patient questions and enter data in the EHR. 

Conversing with the patient and correctly entering information in an EHR is an important part of a patient assessment activity as this data serves as a reference point for all future treatment plans. This module provides practice in asking patients relevant questions, carefully listening, understanding the answer, and entering data in the EHR. The user’s performance can be viewed and reviewed by the trainers and instructors.

Learning Objectives:
  • Collect data and evaluate patient’s state of mental health

Case History

Thomas is 27-years-old. He is visiting because he is scared of his own thoughts and is upset about the way he has been feeling mentally. He admits to having suicidal thoughts and has also considered ways to kill himself. He is extremely disturbed with his state of affairs and wants help in putting an end to it all. As a mental health technician, your task is to initiate a conversation with the client, make them feel at ease, ask relevant questions, understand their mental state and enter data correctly in the EHR. This collected data will be the first step towards formulating an assessment of the client’s mental health and initiating a line of treatment.
