Supportive Care Screening Tool Update 2016
The SCST for Gippsland has recently been updated. The following changes have been made:
The front page is for the patient to complete, including their signature.
The ‘Risk Factor & Screening Interventions’ checklist from the left hand side has been removed, and the highlighted questions have been added.
The K10 remains, and should be completed if the patient scores above four (4) on the distress thermometer.
A ‘Staff Only’ section has been added for the staff member present at the time to complete.
