Ethics Workshop: Recordkeeping for Social Workers - Understanding How Progress Notes Can Help or Hinder Your Practice! 10.11.19

Description:

Recordkeeping for Social Workers - Understanding How Progress Notes Can Help or Hinder Your Practice!

Have you ever wondered when your progress notes should be short or long? Detailed or general? While many providers call recordkeeping a nuisance, this presentation invites attendees to regard recordkeeping as an opportunity to protect yourself in the event of an audit or action against you. Attendees learn how to write notes that support clinical practice and survive scrutiny.
