This is an excellent learning object on a case study of a schizophrenic patient. Specifically involving the aspect of a thorough assessment, this material provides an excellent example of the mental health profession's approach to caring for a schizophrenic patient. A great way to introduce schizophrenia to students or to exemplify the medical model of psychological treatment.

Technical Remarks:

No problems seen upon several reviews. (The clicking to the next page button is a bit too small and annoying but nothing seriously troubling)

A good learning activity for beginning nursing students studying schizophrenia. I would like to see this developed further for interventions, evaluation, etc. I have not used this at present, but will plan to in the future.

Technical Remarks:

easy to use, requires flash.
