OASIS-E Deep Dive: OASIS-E PHQ Interview/Assessment
The Patient Mood Interview (PHQ 9) is a new OASIS question that has confused a lot of clinicians on the proper way to conduct the interview and score the responses. This webinar will go beyond simply discussing the question. Our in-house Clinicians will provide three different scenarios and roll-play the interview so you can see how to properly deliver the assessment.
1. Understand what the PHQ-2 to 9 is assessing
2. Learn how to conduct the PHQ-1-9 Interview
3. Verbalize when to properly stop and score the interview
