Moving Risk Assessment
Posted: 30 Jun 2014 01:06 PM
You currently have the Risk Assessment #1 under case form. The nurse doing the Pregnancy has to go back and chart this.

I feel I would get better compliance if this is done at the end of the Pregnancy Test questions right before I document her results.

And it would be great to have s pull down box for risk assessment #2 before sonogram on sonogram form. It would be even better if it collated that data from Post Pregnancy Test form to that form if it was opened.

Thank you!

Hi joneski,

Glad to see you out utilizing our forums today.SmileyThe purpose of the At Risk Assessment stage 1 being on the Case Form is to get an assessment before anything is done. Is the client walking in asking about an abortion or looking for a place to get one? This is stage one. Once you have the pregnancy test results, have had a chance to talk with the client, and the client knows what types of services you can offer to her, then we see if a changed mind has occurred between that first stage and stage 2, after the pregnancy test.

I think most often the sonogram is done shortly thereafter (depending on how far along the pregnancy is and so forth), so stage 3 is after the sonogram, and then stage 4 is simply "at last contact" and could be anytime.

The goal is to keep this timeline consistent across all eKYROS centers so we can see where changed minds are occurring. It also helps your center to see where changed minds are occurring...at what point in the process.

Kind regards,

Amy

Hi joneskl,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I want to better explain each stage and its purpose.

There are 4 stages in the At Risk Timeline:
Stage 1 - Initial Assessment. Recorded on the Case Form.
Purpose: To track the client advocates initial At Risk Assessment and the client's initial stated intentions.

Stage 2 - Assessment after Support. Recorded on the Pregnancy Test Form.
Purpose: To track the client advocates At Risk Assessment and the client's stated intentions after the client receives counseling/support.

Stage 3 - Assessment after Sonogram. Recorded on the Sonogram Form.
Purpose: To track the client advocates At Risk Assessment and the client's stated intentions after the client receives a sonogram.

Stage 4 - Final Assessment. Recorded on the new Final Assessment Form.
Purpose of this form is to follow-up with the client at later time (sometime after sonogram services have been performed) and record whether the client's At Risk Assessment and/or the client's stated intentions has changed.

Therefore stage 1 wouldn't be AFTER the pregnancy test, as that is stage 2-- once the client knows the result of her pregnancy test and the services that you all provide.

When you open the case and click "At risk timeline" it will display their assessment/intentions at each stage that you can review.

Hope that helps!

Blessings,
Ashleigh

Thank you both for the reply.

I understand the time line and where you are going, but...

I know that most of the time our client don't disclose they are abortion minded until the nurse does her Test questions. We asked them if they are going to parent, Adopt etc.
I always have Risk Assessment #1 in my mind before I walk into the room to tell her the results.

I just am always having to go back to the Case Form and bug my nurses to fill that out because they forget, or I have to try and do it (even though I didn't see the patient).

It is important to do the whole risk assessment. I am just trying to get better compliance from my nurses and was wondering if you would take this under advisement to be moved from Case Form.

Thank you, Karen

Hi Karen,

I don't think Ashleigh and I realized we were both posting at the same time...sorry for information overload! :)

I can see where it would be a struggle if your nurses aren't complying, but this isn't something we will be changing since we have hundreds of centers doing it this way right now. It might be a training issue to consider with your nurses.

And as always, if you would like to discuss further or get some consultation from your eKYROS Account Manager, please do call us.

Thanks,

Amy
