If you are a psychotherapist or provider who has never received training in how to write progress notes or treatment plans, you are in good company. The reality is there isn’t enough training (and affordable ones at best) or opportunities to practice clinical writing skills, and documentation skills do not come naturally; they are learned with training and with practice.
The more proficient you are at your documentation style, the more efficient you will become at tracking client progress, communicating key aspects of services provided, and writing progress notes that can be upheld by state/county audits. This live training will walk you through easy approaches to boost your confidence writing notes with ease and ensure you meet essential audit points. And the beauty is you can ask all the questions you need and get the reply.
Live Training Includes:
o Three of the most common ways to write progress notes
o Elements of a Progress Note
o SOAP and DAP note templates
o The “medical necessity” secret to treatment approvals: Writing notes with this in mind
o Situations where you should write more detailed notes
o Common errors when writing progress notes
o Interactive exercises to practice your new skills
Early Bird Rate: $30 until 11/16/21 and then $49.95
