abstract

  • This article is the first of a two-part series on assessing behavioral health in adult and elderly patients using OASIS. Direct questioning about emotional and behavioral symptoms in addition to observation, reports from family members, and input from other team members are used. This approach improves assessment information and increases nurse confidence and accuracy when making referrals for further psychiatric evaluation and treatment.
