This paper is a family nursing case study which uses the Calgary Family Assessment Model (CFAM) in order to analyze a family's structure, family member relations and dynamics and functioning. Using this assessment model, the paper pinpoints various potential problems that may come about later which might not be addressed by other methods of assessment. The paper then discusses solutions to the present dilemma and includes a critical analysis of the student's participation in the assessment process.

From the Paper:

"The family under study consists of a mother age 33, a father age 36, son age 10 and daughter age 7. This family has no extended family support as the mother's parents are both deceased and the father's mother is too ill to assist in raising their children or helping out with household duties. The family does not provide direct care for her; the father's sister undertakes this responsibility. Siblings on both sides are not close and do not provide much assistance. As previously mentioned, the son is the eldest. He has been diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD/dyspraxia), a learning disorder that causes a delay in language comprehension, speech and poor physical co-ordination."
