NEI17-ETHICS $120/6 CECs Ethical Issues in Case Documentation Laura Lansrud-López, M.A., ATR-BC, LPAT, LPCC, NCC Saturday, June 24, 2017, 9:30am–5pm
The Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) continues to be the law of the land. Its regulatory requirements impact and shape the way mental health services are delivered in this country, and now more than ever helping professionals are tasked with thoroughly and ethically documenting every aspect of care. In some situations, reimbursement is determined by appropriate documentation of progress, in others, solid clinical documentation could provide a defense in the case of client complaint or litigation. In all situations, it is ethical practice to keep timely and accurate records.
This workshop will cover the standards and best practices in case documentation, with an emphasis on relevant legal and ethical issues. We will explore the “Golden Thread” and focus on practical aspects of theory-based case conceptualization, diagnostic assessment, developing audit ready service plans and progress notes, strategies for evaluating progress, and ethical referrals and termination planning. The ACA Code of Ethics will be used as a guiding resource.
