holistic assessment

holistic assessment

A UK term of art for the assessment of a patient in the context of the Single Assessment Process by health and social care professionals, who evaluate all of the domains/sub-domains, including the physical, emotional, mental health, spiritual, environmental, social, sexual, financial, and cultural needs of an individual. An awareness of diversity issues including that of an individual’s history, culture, beliefs and identity is essential. Through the use of interpreters, speaking to individuals and their carers in their own language with sensitivity and respect is key to holistic assessment. Such assessments should identify the patient’s abilities, strengths and preferences, and incorporate the client’s perspective, views and self assessment. Conclusions on risks and needs then are made during the care planning stage.
