Once a person is screened, the HRST produces service considerations and training considerations. Service considerations alert the supporting team as to what health-related services, such as a medical consultation, might be needed to address health risk. Training considerations guide the team on the types of training needed for support staff to be able to recognize and respond to health issues that a person may face.
