Medical Records for General Practitioners
Poor record keeping is a major factor in litigation cases brought against healthcare professionals.
This new workshop will provide you with a thorough understanding of the importance of medical records and aims to enhance your skills in making and keeping quality medical records.
Good medical records, whether electronic or handwritten, are essential for the continuity of care of your patients. They should be comprehensive enough to allow a colleague to carry on where you left off.
The medical records you keep provide a window on the clinical judgement being exercised at the time. Therefore, not only are good medical records essential for continuity of patient care they are also a vital factor if you face a complaint.
“Excellent workshop, lots to think about and put into practice. A realistic, practical approach to record keeping.
