Bipolar Disorder Nursing Care Plan

Bipolar disorder, sometimes called manic-depressive disorder, is associated with mood swings that range from the lows of depression to the highs of mania. The exact symptoms of bipolar disorder vary from person to person.

For some, depression causes most problems, for others, manic symptoms are the main concern. Symptoms of depression and symptoms of mania or hypomania may also occur together. This is known as a mixed episode. Mood shifts may occur only a few times a year, or as often as several times a day.

Although bipolar disorder is a disruptive, long-term condition, it can be managed by following a treatment plan. In most cases, bipolar disorder can be controlled with medications such as mood stabilisers and antidepressants and psychological counselling.

The Bipolar Disorder Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred strategy.
