Event description

Description

The APS Code of Ethics requires psychologist to make and keep adequate records. Ever wondered what is an adequate record? The Code also requires psychologists to maintain privacy and security of records. This workshop is all about notes and records. The morning focuses on the requirements of record keeping. Some of the questions you will be able answer are things like:

  • Who owns the notes?
  • How do you deal with a subpoena?
  • When can you release the notes?
  • How long do you need to keep your records?
  • Can I make the records electronic?

In the afternoon the focus is on practical skills. You will see short video clip of an interview and make your own notes. Then we will look at how your notes stand up – did you get all the important information, is there sufficient detail, and could you give an accounting of this session in legal proceeding. We will then discuss several different models of keeping notes and discuss interesting things like fact and hearsay, what matters in your notes should you go to court, and would you survive an AHPRA audit.
