About this event

Experts OnDemand: A Guide to Clinical Documentation

This course is part of our Experts OnDemand series.

Description

Clinical documentation is a professional skill that can be learned and practiced, however many practitioners value clinical skills over writing skills. Now that prosthetic notes are considered in approval determinations, it is more important than ever for clinicians to express themselves in an efficient and effective manner. This offering from Experts on Demand will explore the basics of a good clinical note, including the initial evaluation, and provide a case example of effective documentation.

Objectives

After successfully completing this training, attendees will be able to:

  • Name at least two elements of Medicare Policy that relate to documentation
  • Describe at least one type of disablement model and how it relates to documentation
  • Explain the four elements of a SOAP note and how they help the practitioner build documentation
  • Summarize the concept of a problem list and how it can help the practitioner organize a written assessment
  • List at least two reasons why clear and organized documentation is critical to clinical care in O&P
