About this event

🌟 Why is effective documentation important?

🌟 Records kept by providers are available for review by many stakeholders and are legal documents. ‘Defensible’ documentation means that all information recorded needs to be presented in an objective factual manner.

🌟 At LPA we have assisted many providers to train the workforce to document using well-known formats such as DAP, SOAP and ISBAR and we want to share these strategies and tips with you during this interactive course. This will assist your workforce to be more ‘professional’ in their documentation particularly when working with the broader health care system.

In the dynamic nature of home care, meticulous documentation serves as more than just a record of care—it is a safeguard for consumers, caregivers, and providers. Accurate and defensible documentation not only supports continuity of care but also ensures compliance with regulatory standards and mitigates legal risks.

Accurate and defensible documentation is the backbone of effective patient management and care coordination. It enables providers to maintain continuity of care by capturing vital information such as patient assessments, treatment plans, medication administration, and progress over time. This comprehensive documentation not only supports informed decision-making but also facilitates seamless communication among interdisciplinary care teams.

🔥 Overview

This training workshop will delve into the fundamental principles and practices of defensible documentation. Attendees will gain a deep understanding of the regulatory landscape governing documentation in home care, learning how to navigate complex requirements with confidence. Through interactive discussions and case studies, attendees will uncover strategies for creating clear, concise, and legally sound documentation that accurately reflects patient assessments, interventions, and outcomes.

When it comes to online training, we know that staring into the “virtual classroom” can sometimes miss those moments that face-to-face events deliver. So, we are mixing things up. In a time of transformation in the sector, we want to make sure now, more than ever, that you are being supported. We will be focusing even more on interactive, immersive training sessions (think break-out rooms, cameras on (yes scary), opportunities to network, and of course maintaining the LPA way of tangible tools and resources).
