The study had three objectives:
1. to identify the common self-care problems encountered by individuals with AIDS who are living at home
2. to describe the types of support that individuals with AIDS receive at home
3. to identify issues that need be addressed by home support programs for clients with AIDS.
National Health Research and Development Program NHRDP Project No. 6610-1579 Final Report
The Short Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability (START) is a brief clinical guide for the dynamic assessment of seven often inter-related risks and treatability. Assessment of risks include: 1/ risk of violence to others; 2/ risk of self-harm; 3/ risk of suicide; 4/ risk of unauthorized leave; 5/ risk of substance use; 6/ risk of self-neglect; and 7/ risk of being victimized. It provides for the differential coding of positive attributes or strengths on a reasonable and manageable number of items and allows for the recording of case-specific risk factors. The START is intended for interdisciplinary use.
