Health Risk Screening Tool Webinar

November 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Online Webinar

A staff shortage means the person has fewer eyes on them to detect issues, and those staff who are working are becoming over-worked due to the shortage.

In this webinar, we will discuss this and how keeping the HRST updated is critical to helping staff stay on top of health deterioration that could easily go unnoticed.

Join us for our free 45-minute webinar to learn more about how the HRST detects health destabilization in vulnerable populations and ensures that proper care and support is provided at all times. Additionally, learn about the impacts of COVID-19 and the DSP shortages felt nationwide.

For several years, Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) has used the Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) in its annual mortality report. In this webinar, we’ll briefly take a look at the data from this year’s study and will also talk about the impacts of COVID-19 and the DSP shortages felt nationwide. Join us to learn more about these topics and, if you are an HRST user, how you can take steps to lessen these impacts on those you support.
