Global Distress Scale

The Optum Wellness Assessment is an integral part of the Alaska Clinical Model.  Analyses demonstrate that the Wellness Assessment scales, comprised of items from well-validated public domain scales, are both valid and reliable. Both have been independently validated to ensure psychometric integrity as an outcome tool and to affirm the tool's use as an objective assessment tool with external credibility.
