Action 5: Refer for Management of Other Problems



5. Refer for management of other medical and social problems: Determine whether social services and marital counselling services are available and refer when indicated. Refer for management of any co-existing medical conditions.

At each follow-up, the healthcare provider must take time to ask about the social history pertaining to the couple.

The healthcare provider must also ask about co-existing medical conditions at each follow-up visit and either provide management or refer for management.
