Done well, your documentation of your clients’ cases has the power to educate other healthcare providers, enhance your professional reputation, improve client outcomes, and promote your practice. On the flip side, poor documentation can create confusion, undermine your credibility, and even result in legal action. In this course, Courtney Polk, MSN, RN, IBCLC, takes you on a deep dive into how to document with accuracy and confidence. Polk covers:

  • Basic principles of good documentation
  • Avoiding common errors
  • Confidentiality, ownership, and access to client records
  • HIPPAA and privacy laws around the world
  • The pros and cons of electronic and paper charting systems
  • Common charting styles, including narrative, the SOAP method, PIE/DAR, and others
  • How to use checklists, standard protocols, care plans, and tear sheets more to make documentation easier, and much more

Take the guesswork out of this challenging yet crucial part of your job.
