CBIS Mental Health Toolkit

CBIS Mental Health Toolkit: based on the BC PSP module on mental health care, this version includes the Anxiety handouts. Instructions: Load the html code as normal. There are many images so these have been zipped into one file (MHT740Images.zip). Save this somewhere on your computer then go: Admin/Upload a form/ then along the top “Import a form” This will ask for a Zip file- browse for MHT740Images.zip and then Import. If you have already loaded some of the Mental Health images, it will detect them and will not load them as duplicates (you will get a warning though-disregard) At the end of this process there will be a “new” eForm in your library called “MHT Images”. You can delete (hit the delete to the right) as this is not a functional form, simply a vehicle to bring in the images.

PTSD Form Created by Chris Sedergreen & John Yap

Attached is an eForm which is a diagnostic tool. It is closely based on the so-called CAPS Scale, which is regarded as the 'gold standard' for diagnosis of PTSD and which in turn is very closely based on the diagnostic criteria listed in DSM IV. This form should not be given to a patient to complete; it should be used to assist in the systematic administration and recording of a structured interview by an experienced clinician. It has no value at all in defining severity or response to treatment in PTSD. I am working on another eForm for that purpose. Chris

Mental Health toolkit Lite

Recently Updated by David Page, and presented by him at OSCAR-CON 2013 Vancouver ---- This is a slimmed down version of the original mental health toolkit The main component is a handout handler which will guide you to suitable handouts for your patient. The lower component are simple links to the eForms. If you have the eForms already (eg PHQ 9), you do not need to reload, however the naming needs to be identical to what the form is looking for. The main components to load are: Mental Health Toolkit MHT images The latter (MHT images) is a zip file that brings in the images. You can delete the html file for MHT images once loaded (no problem if you leave it though). To bring in zip files, go to admin, Upload eForm. Along the top chose the second option: Import, then search for the zip file and upload.

MMSE updated March 2016

Instructions: Zip import this file. Create MMSE measurement (details in HTML). Or use this guide: measurement type="MMSE" typeDesc="MMSE" typeDisplayName="MMSE" validationRule="Numeric Value: 0 to 100". You may wish to add MMSE to your measurement display. This allows the prior score/date to function. Do not change name of the eForm - it is preset by the Import function. If you already have an MMSE eForm, it needs to be archived (renamed or deleted). To use - print the handout for the drawing function, as well as to make your own notes on, if needed. Use the stop watch. This is a timed test for validity. If the patient answers correctly, you may input the answer in the input field if you wish. Correct answers are noted by CHECKING THE X-BOX. You do not need to input the value or calculate. You do not have to use the score button at the bottom. JohnY

AMSIT Mental Status Documentation

Subject: [Oscarmcmaster-bc-users] AMSIT Mental Status Documentation --- Those who practice psychiatric medicine at any level should record the 'mental status' evaluation at the time of the interview. AMSIT is an acronym for documentation in the following domains: Appearance, Mood, Sensorium, Intellectual function and Thought. The attached eform is useful both as an aide memoire and for the purposes of recording the examiner's observations. Also attached is an example of how it was used on an actual patient recently with severe PTSD (name removed of course). The second page contains guidelines on how to use the form. Chris Sedergreen. PS: It seems to work well except that the print function doesn't work. It was created with the 5.4 version of the generator.

Eating Attitudes Test (c) (Eat 26)

Version 8c and version 8 radio updates - 8c code includes the use of arrays in javascript - radio version includes the ht wt and bmi code. Version 8 Update - Dec 25 2015 - behind the scenes improvement of radio behavior of X boxes. Version 6 update - now circles unanswered questions and there is a pop up to remind you to answer all questions. Version 5 update - With the help of Peter HC and myself, this version will calculate the appropriate values, allow for imperial to metric conversions of height and weight, calculate the bmi, and allow the x boxes to behave like radio boxes. JohnR. Version 3 update December 19 2015 - Version 3 is essentially the same as version 2, except that the eform is with radio buttons instead of check boxes. The image files are identical, but the .html is modified. This allows the user to try both to see whether they prefer one over the other. (The image files need only to be loaded once). This ensures that only on answer per line can be chosen. Chris. ---- Version 2 update December 19 2015 - Documents for version 2 of the EAT26 are attached. This is a much improved version. Now a two-pager, the font is larger and so much easier to read. I was also able to incorporate the author's adolescent BMI table as well as instructions and comments. Once again there is a completed example for a fictional patient. Chris. ----- Attached is the Eating Attitudes Test© (EAT 26) questionnaire in the following formats: HTML document; PNG image; original MS Word document (in case anyone wants to play with it) and PDF. The test itself takes up quite a lot of space on the page, so was obliged to use fairly small font to fit it on. There is also a sample questionnaire for an imaginary patient, Skinny-Lizzie Beanpole. > > What are not attached are the author's instructions regarding scoring and interpretation, which cover an additional two pages; as well as a third and 4th page about the BMI. In simple terms the author suggests a cut of score of 20 and higher as indicating concern. But he also makes the point that this is not a diagnostic test; but rather is intended to alert the clinician to the need for further inquiry. He also reminds us of the problem on 'Denial' resulting in incompleteness of disclosure in self screening tests, and recommends correlating the test results with collateral from others significant in the patient's life. > > If others on OSCAR want the full text of Dr. David Garner's comments I will re-submit the html as a 3 page item. > > Chris.

Young Mania Rating Scale 2016

From Chris Sedegreen: The PHQ 9, which many clinicians use to **screen** for mental illness is broad in scope, but imprecise in specific areas. Symptom rating scales can assess the severity of illness, particularly when monitoring changes from one visit to another. The Young Mania Rating Scale has been a gold standard measure of symptom severity in Bipolar Disorder since the late 1970s. This is useful to the clinician since patients in a hypomanic phase do not feel ill, and the clinician may easily be persuaded (incorrectly) that all is well. The use of the scale may enable the clinician to intervene before the manic state results in complications for the patient. It is also assists the clinician in monitoring adjustments to medications regimens. This form should not be given to a patient to complete but should be used by the clinician during a structured interview. Chris.

The Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment tools Basic form July 2016

From Chris Sedergreen : Those of us who deal with psychiatric patients need to document our opinion as to whether a patient is at risk for suicide. (We don't have to be 'right' - we just have to show that we have given it due consideration). The Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment tools are as good as any for this purpose.

The Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment tools Detailed form July 2016

From Chis Sedegreen: Those of us who deal with psychiatric patients need to document our opinion as to whether a patient is at risk for suicide. (We don't have to be 'right' - we just have to show that we have given it due consideration). The Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment tools are as good as any for this purpose. This is the Detailed Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment eForm. This is a two page form but the first page is simply a description and instructions. The questions are a little more probing and thoughtful.

Adult ADHD Self Report Scale ASRS V1.1

From Chris Sedegreen - The Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale Symptom Checklist was developed in conjunction with the World Health Organization and the Workgroup on Adult ADHD that included the following: Lenard Adler, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, New York University Medical School; Ronald C. Kessler, PhD., Harvard Medical School; Thomas Spencer, MD., Associate Professor of Psychiatry Harvard Medical School. ---- The questions are consistent with the DSM IV criteria and address the manifestations of ADHD symptoms in adults. The usual caveat applies that this is a screen and not a diagnostic tool. It takes about 5 minutes to complete. ---- The eForm is in 3 pages with explanations and instructions. ---- Chris.

Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scales with Autoscoring 2016

This remake of the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scales was Authored by Stanley Hurwitz. Original provided by Chris Sedegreen. Here is Chris' original description: After 25 years the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Check List and Rating Scale remain the 'gold standard' for diagnosis and management of the disorder. It is considered to have a high level of reliability as a test instrument. Attached are the Symptom Check List and the severity Rating Scale as eForms and images. The Check list is just that: it's an 'aide memoire' to assist the clinician during an interview. It does not by itself make a diagnosis. It is designed to be administered by a clinician verbally during an interview. However it may be reasonable to allow a patient to complete unsupervised, with the caveat that the patient will often need clarification or guidance on some of the questions. The Rating Scale is used to assess apparent degree of severity. It is important to emphasize that the patient's response should be an 'average' over a 7 day period, rather than the feeling of the moment. By assessing the change of severity over time, clinician and patient can determine response to treatment. In this case the patient should probably not have access to previous scores until they have completed the test. Chris.
