Examining the Validity of Clinical Social Risk Screening Tools

Thursday, July 18th, 2019

11-12:00 pm PST / 2-3:00 pm EST

Join Children’s HealthWatch and Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network (SIREN) for a webinar, “Examining the Validity of Clinical Social Risk Screening Tools”.

Health care-based screening for social risks like food security, housing stability, and transportation access is rapidly spreading across US health care settings. The result has been an increased demand for multi-domain assessment tools, e.g. NACHC’s PRAPARE, CMMI’s Accountable Health Communities social risk screening tool, and the Health Leads questionnaire. This SIREN webinar will focus on whether and how gold standard methods have been applied to test social risk screening tools and what we know about the tools’ psychometric and pragmatic properties. Our first speaker will share findings from a systematic review that assessed evidence on the validity of 21 different social risk screening tools. Our second speaker will zero in on the evidence behind the Hunger Vital Sign(TM), a common food security screening tool.
