Documentation for Treatment Planning

Documentation for Treatment Planning 

Treatment planning documentation is a critical link between the client, the services you provide, and the client’s progress. Recent research has identified that providers often understand the critical components of effective treatment planning and view those components as reflective of the ideal planning process. However, organizational, practical, and personal constraints often lead to major gaps between this ideal treatment planning process and the actual planning process that occurs. Ongoing training in treatment planning and its documentation can reduce these gaps and improve the quality of the care you provide (Treichler, Evans, & Spaulding, 2019). Additionally, inadequate treatment planning is among the top five compliance issues for which organizations are cited by The Joint Commission (Anderson & Vance, 2018). The main goal of this course is to reinforce what you already know about plans of care while offering you direction and structure for capturing the real therapeutic relationship on paper. You will learn how to better represent the care process by incorporating the core principles for clinical documentation. You will take a fresh look at ways to record your client’s strengths, goals, and treatment objectives, while also evaluating methods to accurately represent interventions, outcomes, and discharge plans. To enhance your application of these concepts in your own setting, this course incorporates informative definitions, suggested best practices, as well as client scenarios that represent challenges you might encounter during each phase of the treatment planning process.
