Onsite training course - we come to you

Accurate patient records and documentation should be an essential part of every clinician’s  professional practice.  Too often they are vague and abbreviated, which not only affects patient care but also impacts on any future legal action, inquest or inquiry.

This course will provide you with a guide to excellent record keeping that you can then use to govern your day-to-day practice and help support your staff.

This course will cover:

  • Importance of patient records and documentation and how they may be used in the future
  • Practical guidance on excellent record keeping
  • Assisting your staff in producing unfamiliar documents, including statements, with confidence
  • 5-minute appraisal system to maintain accurate record keeping
    Basic oral evidence presentation skills

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at psychiatrists and managers who are responsible for the accurate production, storage and handling of patient information.
