The general version of the PAT can be used across various illness groups. This also allows for use of the PAT across multiple departments/programs in a hospital, without the need of multiple versions.
Interested users should first examine this version of the PAT to see if it appears relevant for screening for family psychosocial risk in the intended population.
We also recognize that modifications to the PAT may be helpful for some patient populations. We will consider the addition/deletion of items, addition of a population specific sub-scale, etc., when justified.
