This day-long workshop will include multiple hands-on exercises which provide an overview of how to consistently craft clean medico-legal documents that embrace recovery and support effective treatment. We will cover the “golden thread” and The Joint Commission’s “Tracer Methodologies,” which each start with assessment and leave no issue unaddressed. Together, we will review specifics related to DSM-5 diagnoses and how to support and document them. Guidelines and standards from CMS, Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), The Joint Commission, Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Social Services (DSS) will be referenced.
