Judgement & Safety Screening Inventory with Forms

Description

Caregivers of persons with brain injury, stroke, Alzheimer's, and other neurologic disorders often worry about safety and danger inside and outside the home. The JASSI was developed to identify, describe, and communicate concerns that may not be obvious to professionals or others. The JASSI has also been helpful in documenting disability.

Designed to be comprehensive, the JASSI items are organized into nine categories - Travel, Financial, Appliances and Tools, Interpersonal, Medication and Alcohol, Food and Kitchen, Household, Fire Safety, and Firearms. Respondents are asked to rate each item on a 4-point scale indicating their level of concern, ranging from "none" to "very much." The JASSI is easily completed in 10 - 15 minutes using interview or self-report formats. Separate versions allow for completion by the patient and family member or other informant.

By identifying areas of greatest concern, clinicians and family members can help maintain the safety of patients, family members, and others. The JASSI is offered as a complete kit, which includes a manual, response card, and forms. The manual provides information about administration, scoring, interpretation, precautions, and recommendations to improve safety.

Introductory kit with 20 sets of forms.
