18.104.22.168 ADAT step 1
Are further steps necessary?
If a medical practitioner has certified that the care receiver is in the terminal phase of a terminal illness and is not expected to live for more than 3 months, the total final score is 30 for CA or 25 for CP. The test is complete and no further steps are necessary.
Exception: Where 2 or more carers have applied for CP for the same care receiver who is in the terminal phase of a terminal illness the rest of the steps of the ADAT will need to be completed to establish if a score of 80 is achieved, with a THP score of at least 32.
