This is the DASS-21: Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale has been transcribed for use as an editable PDF document. It can be dispatched using the Client Portal or completed in the office with the client (e.g. on a tablet).
To get a copy of the form, click here Editable fields are shaded in gray. Download first before experimenting with the form. I have found that my default viewer does not let me play with the editable fields.
How to use this document with the client portal:
- Upload the DASS-21 to your SP account using My Account > Settings > Client Portal > Files (Read Only). Areas of the form are in fact editable once the PDF is opened in a PDF viewer.
- Open the client's overview page and click Share New on the right.Select the DASS-21 from the list of forms displayed. When the client receives the document in the portal, they will have to download it to their local drive in order to view it. Once opened in the viewer, they can edit it.
- When editing is complete, the client must print the edited file as a PDF. This file can then be attached to an email and sent back to you.
- Be aware that if they return the completed assessment to you via Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or the like, it is going over an unsecured, non-HIPAA-compliant network. It cannot be returned via the client portal. If anyone has any ideas as to how this can be returned HIPAA-compliantly, please shout out.
