You’ve been busy! Stocking up on food. Telecommuting. Home schooling your kids. And figuring out how you are going to pay bills while not drawing a paycheck or being able to meet with clients face to face.
Many clinicians I know are rapidly transitioning to providing services online. As you might imagine, many of those work feedback-informed, using the ORS and SRS at each visit to guide and inform treatment decisions. In fact, I’ve noticed something curious since the COVID-19 crisis began: downloads of the measures from my website are up, significantly — 21% more compared to the prior three month period.
All good but, how to employ the measures online?
Thanks to ICCE Certified Trainer, Stacy Bancroft for pulling together these tips:
- Use the standardized oral scripting to administer the tools. It’s available in the download file.
- Share your screen. Display the ORS and SRS and then use your finger, moving slowly along each item until they tell you to stop.
- Use one of the three, authorized software systems. Each, in slightly different ways, make it possible to email, text or send links to the forms and have them completed either manually or electronically. Below, you will find several brief, how-to videos for the various systems.
- Finally, connect with the members of the International Center for Clinical Excellence clinical community. It’s free to join. Just click the link below my name.
Until next time, in these uncertain times, I wish you health, safety, and peace.
