Recent licensing board requirement updates, ethical guidelines, and third-party regulations make it more challenging than ever for therapists to effectively document what happens in treatment.
In this 2-hour continuing education webinar for therapists, Dr. Rochelle Perper will review information about the 21st Century Cures Act and OpenNotes trends, the implications for mental health, and how this impacts case note documentation. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of lean case note documentation and how to balance transparency and patient autonomy with the need to protect patient privacy.
This introductory continuing education webinar is designed to help mental health professionals:
