Teen Type 1 Diabetic Patient.
I need help with a Health & Medical question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Please see below, this is a discussion post. 760 words minimum.
You are working in a family practice when your newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic patient comes in. He is a 15-year-old male and is accompanied by his mother.
The mother and patient report that he is “devastated” by his new diagnoses and that he hasn’t been going out with his friends or participating in any of his previous activities. You suspect that he might be experiencing depression.
Please locate 4 resources specific to this situation that you would refer this parent/patient to for further support. Provide a brief description for each resource and explain why you chose them.
