Training in the use of the new and changed items of the OASIS-E (Outcome and Assessment Information Set) is critical for home health clinicians. This course is designed to increase the clinician’s knowledge of accurate assessment, documentation, and administration of these new items by exploring the processes and official guidance on how to answer the new OASIS-E items with precision.
This course is part 2 of a 4-part series and includes an in-depth look at new items, along with use of scenarios to reinforce the learning concepts:
Part 2. Patient Mood Interview, High Risk Drug Classes & Special Treatments, Procedures and Programs – are new assessment items in OASIS-E. The patient mood interview expands the previously assessed PHQ-2 to PHQ-9 to identify the presence of signs and symptoms of mood distress. Additionally, CMS has formally defined medications falling within the high-risk drug classes for OASIS-E which requires the clinician to assess for identifying indications of drug use. Finally, the special treatments, procedures, and programs item will identify important medical treatments being utilized by the patient. Previously, these therapies have been inconsistently documented in various areas of the patient’s clinical record. An in-depth look at these new items, along with use of scenarios, is included.
