College of Podiatry Record Keeping Courses

College of Podiatry Record Keeping Courses

The College of Podiatry (CoP) has teamed up with Radcliffes LeBrasseur, the legal firm that deals with members’ medical malpractice claims. Throughout the day we will look extensively at the CoP’s Record Keeping and Consent Clinical Standards. It is an interactive day that will cover what should and should not be included in patient notes, how to write good patient notes, the legal requirements surrounding patient notes, and how to audit your own patient notes. The course will also discuss Consent for treatment. The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will also be covered. 

This course is vitally important to all podiatrists to make sure you are up to date on your knowledge regarding writing patient notes. Do you know what should be included in patient notes? Equally importantly, do you know what should not be included in patient notes? All this and more is covered on the course. Register on one of our courses or ask your local branch to request one.

If you do not comply with the CoP Record Keeping or Consent Clinical Standards then you may leave yourself potentially uninsured and wide open to criticism by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) should an allegation be made against you, or the patient notes may not be defensible in court.
