Medical Record-Keeping is an interactive online program that addresses the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario Medical Record Keeping Policies. Using case-based exercises, peer assessments and training on practice tools, the program provides participants with skills needed to keep good medical records for their patients and their practice.
After active engagement in this program, you will be better able to:
- Identify the benefits of keeping good medical records for your patients, their families, other medical providers and yourself
- Articulate how your medical records must comply with CPSO policies and legislation as they relate to medical practice
- Use appropriate documentation tools when documenting any clinical encounter
This program is designed for physicians from multiple disciplines looking to improve their medical records in practice. It will be of benefit to those who wish to become familiar with documentation tools for clinical encounters and to comply with CPSO policies and legislation as they relate to record keeping.
