In preparation for the summer camp season, we are rolling
out a new, simplified annual health and medical record effective March 1, 2014.
Thanks to you, your volunteers, your parents, and your unit leaders for
providing constructive feedback on how we could make the record easier to use
while still collecting the information needed to make sure our Scouts are ready
for their experience. 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
- 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
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.
