    Building upon the revised diagnostic framework of the DSM-5, this presentation defines somatic symptom disorders, reducing the focus upon lacking medical explanations for physical symptoms in order to make the diagnosis of “medically unexplained symptoms.” With the renewed goal of increasing patient access to appropriate treatment, symptoms that are substantially more severe than expected in association with distress and impairment are emphasized. The presentation explores conditions with no medical explanation and conditions where there is some underlying pathology but an exaggerated response. These concepts are operationalized to enhance the nurse practitioner’s skill in assessing, diagnosing, and managing these challenging disorders in a variety of settings. | 1.75 credits (0.50 pharmacology) | $40
