The Medical Record-Keeping Workshop is designed to support physicians to improve medical record keeping and ensure quality of patient care, continuity of care, assessment of care, and evidence of care. Co- Directors Dr. Susan Deering and Dr. Kate Hodgson are responsible for the workshop, which is presented in six modules over the course of one day.
Last year, 267 health care providers attended a workshop; 205 of whom were family physicians. Multiple speciality groups were also represented, including psychiatrists, internists, and pediatricians. This is a 37% increase in participation over the previous year’s 169 registrants. Although workshop participants are primarily from Ontario, the program attracted attendees from across Canada.
In the last academic year, 15 workshops were delivered, including an offsite program in Markham. The Medical Record Keeping workshop was also delivered at the Family Medicine Forum Quebec City in 2014, the Family Medicine Forum Toronto 2015, and Primary Care Today 2014. This fall, outreach to communities included workshops in Barrie and Windsor.
