Title: Best Practices in Case Notes Documentation

About the Session:-

Writing accurate notes and keeping records of all activities related to your client is mandatory in most client-centered services. Documenting correctly to ensure files are in compliance with the policy is a learned skill that some have mastered and many continue to find it challenging. The challenge many faces is the lack of time, not knowing what exactly to write or how to briefly, and clearly capture the information.

This 1-hour webinar will be an opportunity to share with each other what works well or the Best Practices used in writing case notes. Please come prepared to share how YOU keep accurate records in client case notes that ensure compliance with policies and protocols issued by your organization, government, and/or funder.
