Defensible Documentation Workshop

Person holding a paper document
Location: Bendigo
Date: 12/02/2019

What happens if your support is questioned?

Can your progress note documentation provide evidence of your duty of care? Or is it subjective, irrelevant or incomplete?

This course will introduce you to defensible documentation and give you the skills to ensure your documentation always protects you.

Upon completion of the workshops, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify the key elements required for progress notes to be defensible under question
  • Apply strategies to make documentation easier
  • Understand duty of care and how to document relevant information, incidents, risks, change and ‘refusal of care’
  • Examine the benefits of defensible documentation
  • Write notes that can defend NDIS goal support funding
