Record Keeping

Public course: £195 + VAT
In-house course: call for details
Duration: 1 Day (6 hours CPD)

Records, including notes, are an essential tool which health and social care professionals must be able to use effectively to meet their various legal and professional responsibilities.

Course Overview

This interactive, practical course has been designed to give an understanding of how, when, and why to write timely and accurate records, including understanding the importance these may have in potential legal proceedings.

This course has been designed to help ensure professionals are able to adopt a defendable practice to their notes and records, while also considering their own accountability and that of their organisation.

Throughout the day, delegates will consider what should, and should not be recorded in care records and the importance of focusing on not just what was said, but also on what is not being said by the person receiving care, alongside their overall presentation.

Delegates will consider what “good” looks like from their own perspective and within their role. They will be assisted to formulate a note keeping template which will help them to capture all relevant information, while considering the audience who will read their notes and records.

The course will conclude with a short cross-examination exercise to further highlight the importance of good record keeping
