Screening is an important part of preventive care. Screening typically involves the use of screening tools. While they are not diagnostic they can help identify patients early enough to provide timely treatment and reduce consequences (Iragorri & Spackman, 2018). I think whatever screening tools are utilized in health care providers have to be aware of their specificity and sensitivity and to understand that these alone are not diagnostic, but rather raise the suspicion of a disease and warrant further investigation. In addition, the utilized tools have to be age and gender appropriate and to target specific populations, be easily accessible, cost effective, reliable (false positive and negatives), the information they provide has to be of value, and pose none to minimal health risk (Iragorri & Spackman, 2018).
