Description

This purpose of this session is to help students and practicing therapists develop an efficient and effective documentation strategy appropriate for use across a wide range of practice settings and patient populations. This approach is grounded in the ICF framework and will facilitate a clinical decision making approach to optimize patient outcomes. The framework further incorporates both the APTA’s Guidelines for Physical Therapy Documentation and the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, and is consistent with Medicare and third-payer guidelines for functional outcomes assessment. The talk will cover documentation of the initial evaluation, daily notes and progress reports, and will specifically address movement system diagnoses, goal-setting and functional outcomes assessments. We will provide actual clinical examples from a range of patient populations and clinical practice settings. Participants will have the opportunity to practice documentation skills and ask individual questions pertaining to their current practice.
