This Society of Hospital Medicine tool outlines eight factors the Project BOOST team recommends should be documented and analyzed for each patient as part of a structured risk assessment. These include problems with medications, palliative care and principal diagnosis (including COPD). The authors recommend pairing each of the 8 P's with an appropriate intervention available at the user's institution; assigning each of the P's to an individual or role to maintain accountability in implementation; engaging patients and families in the risk assessment and amelioration process; and ensuring the outcomes for assessed variables are communicated to all involved providers.
