Developing a Brief Assessment of Social Risks for the Veterans Health Administration Survey of Healthcare Experiences of Patients Hausmann LRM, Cohen AJ, Eliacin J, et al. | Health Services Research
SIREN Team note: This paper is among the first to examine the influence of “look-back” periods included in social risk screening questions. The authors asked whether the prevalence of reported risks would change based on the amount of time patients are asked to review, e.g., “Over the last 6 months, have you…?” After randomly assigning patients to screening questions that included either 6 or 12- month look-back periods, they found that patients in both groups reported similar rates of social risks.
