A new toolkit from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) provides resources to help primary care physicians and staff assess the health status and health risks of patients. Health Assessments in Primary Care outlines how to collect and analyze health-related information to support beneficial health behaviors and direct changes in potentially harmful health behaviors. The guide’s sample health assessment for adults includes questions about snoring and daytime sleepiness.
