5. Has HEARTSMAP undergone pilot testing?

Yes. HEARTSMAP was piloted at the BC Children’s Hospital pediatric ED in September 2014. ED clinicians at BC Children’s Hospital provided feedback during this pilot period, allowing us to refine tool’s scoring criteria, provide additional sample interview questions, and adapt the user interface to improve user experience. HEARTSMAP has since been adopted as the standard psychosocial assessment tool used at the BC Children’s Hospital pediatric ED.
