Tools for Healthcare Providers
This section includes some of the screening tools and point-of-care tools that have been developed by a variety of sources, including the Health Unit in partnership with community colleagues.
Point-of-care tools synthesize current research and evidence into a single screening and intervention tool. These tools can assist healthcare providers to assess a patient’s health in a timely, comprehensive manner, and offer potential referral and intervention options, if appropriate.
