Beck Depression, Beck Anxiety and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression ScreensAnswered
Has anyone already transcribed the Beck Depression and/or Beck Anxiety, and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Screens into Simple Practice forms? If so, is this the best way to do this? These are screens I sometimes do each session, or every few sessions, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to use them during telehealth sessions.
Creating a form is what I'm thinking. Because the client would be able to "fill it out" and return it to me. If I created just a document-- that wouldn't be as "interactive" correct?
Thanks for your input, I'm new to Simple Practice and trying to understand how to best use it. Thanks! Jen Schermerhorn
Jen, I'd recommend creating these as Note Templates using our Note and Form Template Builder! We have a great class on using this feature at simplepractice.com/classes. You could definitely create the same template as a Note Template for you to fill out, and as an Intake Form template for the client to fill out through the Client Portal.
Welcome to SimplePractice!
I think the Form idea is the way to go, but not as a note that you'd fill out since this is something you want the client to self-administer. I created something similar as an assessment tool, so I only send it out as part of my initial intake packet. If you want to be able to re-use the form as an on-going form of assessment, every time the client completed the form, you'd need to copy/paste their responses into a note in their file. (Because every time you send the form, you'll need to delete the responses previously sent.) I think the only way to copy/paste form responses is to use the print function for the form and then copy/paste from that screen.
Hope that helps (a bit)!
