I like how the 2-COM is client focused and not only asks if something is a problem but also if this is something you would like to talk about now, some problems may feel uncomfortable and cause the pt. to feel quite anxious but with them knowing that those questions will not be asked can be reassuring to them. This form can allow the pt. to feel more in control on deciding what is and isn’t important to be discusses while also giving service providers a better understanding of the pts needs.

Appointments can make anyone nervous and forget key topics they wanted to address, I like that this gives an opportunity for the pt. to better advocate for themselves.
