State of the Science on Social Screening in Healthcare Settings

In a recent report funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network at the University of California (SIREN) synthesizes existing research on social screening in US healthcare settings with the goal of informing the intensifying national dialogue about this topic. In the report, SIREN summarizes findings in five digestible sections: prevalence of screening; an update on the psychometric and pragmatic validity of existing screening tools; patients’ perspectives on screening; providers’ perspectives on screening; and screening implementation.
