Risk screening / assessment requirements

prev page|TOC|next page

The healthy lifestyle program documentation should include a description of the risk screening and assessment requirements of the program.

Observation, screening and assessment form a continuous process through which an individual’s strengths and needs are identified and inform the plan of intervention/action.

Risk screening provides a mechanism to:

  • identify an individual’s characteristics and needs
  • trigger a more in-depth assessment, such as a medical review, if necessary
  • identify if the participant is suitable for the program
  • identify if the participant requires a modified program.

The program documentation should define a consistent approach to how risk screening and assessment is undertaken (who, how, when) and should include risk screening and assessment templates and flowcharts/decision trees as appropriate.
