PBI Medical Record Keeping (MR-17)Back
17 CE hours
Deficiencies in medical record keeping is a common reason for referral to a remedial course, yet many clinicians fail to recognize why they are being held to account for what they may consider a chore—even a distraction from patient care. Our course illustrates why the process of keeping complete, clear, and accurate medical records is critical to the responsible provision of patient care and explores perceived obstacles to adhering to better practices. The pre-seminar review of provided medical records sets the stage for the in-person, interactive instruction in standards of record keeping, including trouble-shooting to ensure that newfound habits can be maintained.
