In our new segment Form of the Month, we will be shining the spotlight on form improvements. 

Skin Assessment Form of the Month

We continually update our forms based on real-life clinical feedback from clients, as well as industry and regulatory changes.

As such, clients are sometimes unaware new versions of their favourite forms exist.

We will be showing you side by side comparisons of an older form and that same form from our latest Continuum version. 


The March Form of the Month is Skin Assessment (Waterlow)

Skin Assessment - Waterlow

Continuum 2.0

Waterlow validated assessment did not include the Malnutrition Screening Tool.

All checkboxes and information fields are contained within one block without section breaks. There is no guided workflow, making the risk of erroneous input higher.

No section on Skin Integrity to record current and past skin conditions. 

Skin Assessment 2.2

New Continuum 2.2

Updated Waterlow validated assessment that takes into account the Malnutrition Screening Tool.

Several updates to the assessment help to prevent erroneous input and improve workflow.

New Skin Integrity section that records current and past skin conditions. This information flows through to the care plan.
