Mastering interRAI HC (USA) is a web-based educational program that provides an engaging and interactive learning experience, incorporating expert subject matter knowledge, modern instructional design theory and leading edge media technologies. This software helps health care professionals to understand interRAI terminology and procedures involved in completing the interRAI HC assessment. Clinicians can practice the assessment approach and evaluate their skills through an interactive real life case study of a home care client. Self-evaluations at the end of most sections provide feedback on the topics needing review. The Form Overview and Case Study, Coding Guidelines, provide detailed information on the assessment process.
Mastering interRAI HC (USA) also provides detailed information about how Clinical Assessment Protocols (CAPs) are triggered and how they are central to care planning. Learn about the use of CAPs and outcome measures in the care planning process, along with other applications of the assessment information you collect.
