Active Monitoring

Active Monitoring will commence when a decision is made (and agreed with the PATIENT) that it is clinically appropriate to start a period of monitoring, possibly whilst the PATIENT receives symptomatic support, but without any specific or significant CLINICAL INTERVENTION at this stage.

Description

Active Monitoring is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

Active Monitoring will commence when a decision is made (and agreed with the PATIENT) that it is clinically appropriate to start a period of monitoring, possibly whilst the PATIENT receives symptomatic support, but without any specific or significant CLINICAL INTERVENTION at this stage.

Active Monitoring may be initiated by either a CARE PROFESSIONAL or a PATIENT.

The start of Active Monitoring will end a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD.

During Active Monitoring the PATIENT will remain under the care of a CONSULTANT or NHS Allied Health Professional Service (Referral To Treatment Measurement)  although the GENERAL PRACTITIONER will be updated with the progress of their PATIENT.

If a Decision To Treat is made during Active Monitoring, this will end the Active Monitoring and will start a new REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD; see REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD START DATE.
