Health Record Documentation (NURS-1685)
Accurate, timely, and relevant documentation of health care provided to clients is necessary to ensure consistency of care within the multidisciplinary team. Health documents provide a legal representation of the assessments, actions, and related results when caring for a client.
In this course you will study the purpose, standards and methods of documentation as a means of communication of the care you have provided to your clients. You will learn how documentation demonstrates a commitment to providing safe, effective, ethical care and accountability for professional practice. You will learn the Canadian standards of documentation, types of nursing reports, and discuss methods of recording data.
