Effective July 1, 2019, new and revised pain assessment and management standards will be applicable to Joint Commission-accredited home health services under the Home Care Accreditation program. This project is a continuation of the initiative that resulted in new and revised pain assessment and management requirements for hospitals, ambulatory care organizations, critical access hospitals, and office-based surgery. The program-tailored standards are designed to provide accreditation programs with contemporary guidance for pain assessment and management and strengthen organizations’ practices for pain assessment, treatment, education, and monitoring. The prepublication version of the pain assessment and management standards will be available online until the end of June 2019. On or after July 1, 2019, please access the new requirements in the E-dition.
Mais, comme pour toutes les recommandations de la JCHCA, vous pouvez d’ores et déjà accéder au R3 (« which provide the rationale and references that The Joint Commission employs in the development of new requirements »).
