I work in a multi-physician, multi-site community health center. We provide medical, dental and WIC services to low income and migrant agricultural persons. Many of our patients are poorly educated and speak english as a second language (if at all).
Currently, our screeners obtain all medical history. I am interested in the concept of empowering our clients to become more aware of and responsible for this information. I would like to consider a trial of self-completed Pt. history forms in one of our health centers.
Does anyone work in a similar environment and use a form that I might look at?
Do you have any horror or success stories that you would like to share with me?
Thanks for your help!
