What's Missing From Your Charts: Writing Great Notes

Date: Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Time: 12:00pm to 3:00pm CST (9:00am - 12:00pm PST)

Virtual Platform: Zoom

Speaker: Barbara Griswold, LMFT (she/her)

Description: While you may shiver at the idea of an insurance plan, ethics committee, or licensing board reviewing your charts, this is happening more frequently — even to psychotherapists who don’t work with insurance. Poor notes may even be considered fraud or unprofessional conduct, or lead insurance plans to refuse claim payments or ask for money back. In these cases, well-written records are essential, can be your only defense, and can be a deciding factor in whether a client gets necessary treatment or disability approval. But if you are like most therapists, you never received training in how to write notes. And you may not realize how your current note-keeping habits can hurt you – and your clients.

This course will teach you how to write BRIEF notes that satisfy legal, ethical, and insurance expectations, so that you’ll feel confident if you receive a records request. Plus, we'll outline new documentation requirements for telehealth. You’ll be introduced to 2 note templates, which you can download and use immediately in your practice. Best of all, you will get the rare opportunity to see examples of what “good” progress notes look like..
