According to Schuntermann, 1997, in the US National Library of Medicine and Health journal article posted, this “is a 17-item generic questionnaire instrument designed to measure adult self-reported functionalhealth status quantitatively during a one-week time window and can take less than five minutes to complete. There are 11 scales. Six scales (i.e.,
physical health, mental health, social health, general health, perceived health, self-esteem) measure function, with high scores indicating better health. Five scales (i.e., anxiety, depression, anxiety-depression, pain disability) measure dysfunction, with high scores indicating greater dysfunction.” I believe this would be important and helpful to evaluate Pedro because it will assess his overall health and functionality. I would re-evaluate Pedro throughout his case to ensure each area of his health and functionality is improving. It is important to assess his mental and emotionalhealth while receiving treatment for HIV/AIDS, as some of the medication can worsen mental health issues. It will also be important to evaluate Pedro after he is clean off of drugs again, to ensure drugs was not causing the issues identified on the scale, but also after he starts any medication for mental health issues that are identified, such as an antidepressant, to ensure his symptoms are improving.References:DAST-20 (n.d.).

I felt like the test that I would have used would have pin point his short falls and his progress, but because you can at a different angle it has made me rethink the scales I would have used.
