A client diagnosed as having panic disorder with agoraphobia is admitted to the inpatient psychiatric unit. Until her admission, she had been a virtual prisoner in her home for 5 weeks, afraid to go outside even to buy food. What is the nurse's overall goal when planning care for this client?

1. To help the client perform self-care activities
2. To help the client function effectively in her environment
3. To help control the client's symptoms
4. Top help the client participate in group therapy

Explanation

A client with panic disorder typically confines movements to increasingly smaller areas to avoid confronting fears, which may dominate the client's life and limits everyday activities. The overall goal of care is to help the client function within the environment as effectively as possible. Panis disorder with agoraphobia doesn't impair the client's ability to perform self-care activities.
