Medical Record Keeping: Registered Kinesiologist
Recent improvements in patient healthcare are the result of many factors: scientific breakthroughs, medical innovation, and technological advances. Medical records fall into the last category; they are a portal through which health care practitioners can step into the history of a patient to learn about prior care, understanding current diagnosis and status, and subsequently create a treatment plan. Medical records have long been vital tools in patient care, and current technologies are brining medical records into the 21st century through innovative software and hardware computer programs. As a health care practitioner, it is your responsibility not only to provide care to patients, but also to keep thorough, methodical records.
This 1-day interactive workshop encompasses case-based exercises, peer assessment exercises and training on practical tools. It reviews the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario’s Standard on Record Keeping.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Maintain medical records to ensure quality, continuity, assessment and evidence of care
- Apply components required in the Record Keeping Standard
- Assess medical records according to the requirements of the Record Keeping Standard
- Define the requirements of the Record Keeping Standard and apply them
- Identify the benefits of complete Medical Records
- Audit and improve your own medical record keeping practice
