Phases of POMR[edit | edit source]
Phase 1 The formation of a database, including history, physical examination and laboratory and other test results
Phase 2 Identification of a specific problem list from the interpretation of the database, including specific impairment of function (Physical, psychological, social and vocational) resulting from the disease process or from secondary impairments.
Phase 3 Identification of a specific POC that includes interventions for each of the problems described; evaluative and progress notes are included for each problem.
Phase 4 Determination of the effectiveness of the POC and subsequent changes as a result of patient progress.
It Highlights[edit | edit source]
The POMR thus highlights the relationship of the database to the POC and allows the specific patient problems to become the central focus of planning.
