Hi Katy, I appreciate that you shared that you have yet to use the 2-COM in practice as of yet, I have not either. I think it is a valuable assessment tool, something I would like to integrate into my practice.
What is your experience providing virtual care or care to remote areas? How do you feel COVID-19 has changed this?
I just moved to a rural area this year and have found virtual methods more common in my practice than when I lived in a larger town. Some assessments can be more difficult to complete especially when it is a phone call appointment, you can not see the other person and their body language. That being said it is important to meet clients where they are at, provide the best care possible with the situation at hand.
Having limited resources or a rural community can definitely change the concept of providing care, impact assessment methods or tools, and cause clinicians to become creative.
