ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The development of the GAIN Recommendation and Referral Summary was supported with funds from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (Contract no. 270-2003-00006), Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Grant no. 47266), and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (Grant no. R01 AA10368). It would not have happened without the input from dozens of grantees (particularly Susan Godley and the staff of Chestnut Health System’s Bloomington, IL adolescent treatment unit) and additional hard work of several individual beta testers (who proofread over two dozen G-RRS against original interviews and made many invaluable suggestions for improving it) and the grants that sponsored their work, this includes: Lora Passetti, Matt Orndorff, Jenny Hammond and Bobbie Jo Allen from Chestnut Health Systems (CSAT grant no TI14456), Doug Smith from University of Iowa (CSAT grant no TI13354), Alex Kuprion from Seven Counties (CSAT grant no TI13345), Benjamin Chambers and Wayne Scott from Multnomah County (RWJF grant no 45054), and Robert Ketterlinus from Philadelphia Health Management Corporation (CSAT grant no TI14376).

Objectives l.jpg
Objectives with Level of Care

  • Provide an overview of how to use the GAIN Recommendation and Referral Summary (G-RRS) to support clinical decision-making.

  • Review procedures of downloading, installing and customizing the G-RRS

  • Discuss issues in implementing the G-RRS


Slide7 l.jpg
Part I with Level of Care Overview of how to use the GAIN Recommendation and Referral Summary (G-RRS) to support clinical decision-making


Slide8 l.jpg

GAIN with Level of Care

The Global Appraisal of Individual Needs or “GAIN”

is actually a series of standardized instruments designed to integrate the assessment for both clinical (e.g., diagnosis, bio-psycho-social assessment, placement, and treatment planning) and program evaluation (needs assessment, clustering, fidelity, outcomes, and benefit cost) purposes.

Main interpretative reports to support diagnosis placement and treatment planning l.jpg
Main Interpretative Reports with Level of Care to Support Diagnosis, Placement, and Treatment Planning

  • GAIN Referral and Recommendation Summary (G-RRS) - Text based narrative in MS Word designed to be edited and shared with specialist, clinical staff from other agencies, insurers and lay people.

  • Individual Clinical Profile (ICP) – more detailed report in MS Access designed to help triage problems and help the clinician go back to the GAIN for more details if necessary (generally not edited or shared)


G rrs organization l.jpg
G-RRS Organization with Level of Care

  • Presenting Concerns and Identifying Information

  • DSM-IV/ICD-9 Diagnoses 

  • Evaluation Procedure

  • Substance Use Diagnoses and Treatment History (ASAM criteria A)

  • Level of Care and Service Needs (ASAM Six Dimensional Criteria B)

  • Summary Recommendation


General l.jpg
General with Level of Care

  • Can use the client name, initials or another term supplied by the person running the report

  • Can use the site’s organizational name or another term supplied by the person running the report

  • The G-RRS comes out in a MS Word Document file (*.doc) that can be read, edited and saved by most word processing programs.

  • The report include three types of prompts identifying areas where counselors:

    • Often add additional information or comments from other sources of information

    • Have to reconcile and finalize potentially conflicting diagnoses

    • Have to make preliminary treatment planning recommendations

  • The ICP report parallels the G-RRS and provides more detailed information to supplement it and/or to cross reference back to the GAIN for more information.


General continued l.jpg
General - Continued with Level of Care

  • The G-RRS summarizes data collected and follows existing rules; it is a tool to feed into and support clinical judgment – not to replace it.

  • The G-RRS can only generate reports using the data collected.

  • A G-RRS based on the full (90-120 minute) version of the GAIN contains more details (e.g., name of school, employer, probation officer) than a G-RRS based on the core (60-90 minute) version of the GAIN.

  • Sites can add in questions that are not in their core but that they want to have for the G-RRS.

  • Sites can also remove sections of the report that they do not want and/or modify some of the labels (e.g., signature lines)

Implementation issues l.jpg
Implementation Issues area

  • While many staff will be very excited about having the G-RRS help them do paper work, there are several issues that will need to be resolved on a site-by-site basis.

  • We recommend starting with a small team of people (from multiple agencies if a complex project) that can try using the G-RRS and think through how it interacts with existing systems, requirements, and policies during a 4 to 8 week start up phase.


Some likely questions l.jpg
Some Likely Questions area

  • Who will run the report? (Do they have the necessary hardware and software?)

  • How will the report get to the clinician that needs to use it?

  • How does this clinician get access to the ICP and full GAIN when they need it?

  • Where will the reports be saved (and what security safeguards are in place to protect documents with private health information)?

  • Does the report need a signature (e.g, from the person or persons responsible for finalizing the diagnosis, placement and treatment plans)? If so, who needs to sign it and by when?

  • When does the report need to be in the clinical file? (How does the report get into the clinical file?)


Some likely questions47 l.jpg
Some Likely Questions area

  • Who edits the report/needs training on how to edit the report?

  • Where can the information needed to fill in the prompts be found? Does the site want to drop or change the wording of some prompts?

  • What parts of the report (if any) should be expanded or deleted routinely? (If deleted routinely, should they just be deleted from the template?)

  • Who needs to approve implementation of the report?

  • Who needs to be notified that the report will be implemented (e.g., records staff, counselors)?

  • Who will be the point person within the site to ask questions about the G-RRS? (typically a GAIN trainer, ABS administrator or clinical coordinator).

  • See also FAQs in hand out on install G-RRS applications
