Abstract The article reports on research which was conducted to test the feasibility and effectiveness of a nurse-administered Level 1 social work screen to identify individuals in need of intervention by a master’s-level social worker in individuals attending a Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Geriatric Patient Aligned Care Team (GERI-PACT). After evaluating the screen researchers determined that it may have limited utility in targeting social work review when used in a high-risk population.
