In preparation for the summer camp season, there is a new, simplified annual health and medical record effective March 1, 2014.
Some of the key updates are:
The primary version will be English. The existing bilingual version will remain available.
Part A (Informed Consent, Release Agreement, and Authorization) will contain no medical information and will be shorter by one page.
Part B (General Information/Health History) will include only the most important information needed.
Part C (Pre-Participation Physical) will be reduced to one page with expanded sections for allergy explanation.
Supplemental Risk Advisory (former Part D) will be shortened and be location specific. This is designed to take to physicians so they will better understand what activities their patients will participate in.
A redesign of the landing page for the annual health and medical record website so participants and parents will be able to download only what they need.
The Gulf Coast Council and Spanish Trail Scout Reservation will accept both the new and the old verision of the annual health and medical record. As long as it is has been less than one year from the date of the pre-participation physical.
If you, or your unit, are attending an another council's camp or national high adventure you will need to contact them directly for their policies on the new forms.
