Usually offered as an in-house workshop or training and 1:1 coaching, this virtual workshop is an opportunity for organisations to send staff to discuss correct methods of record-keeping, and learn the leading method to document progress notes professionally, legally and competently.

The three-hour workshop covers:

  • Legal requirements of progress note documentation
  • Correct language and words to communicate factual information respectfully
  • Tips for simplifying documentation and ensuring it's relevant and reader-friendly
  • Duty of care - What it means and how to evidence it
  • The recommended format for documenting care and support, risks, incidents, complaints and informed risk-taking.
  • The two 'C's of consent to defensibly document choice and refusal of care.
  • Practice writing defensible notes
