 The Comprehensive Assessment Narrative

Webinar Details:

Checking boxes on an assessment document may be one part of documenting the comprehensive assessment of a hospice patient. A truly comprehensive assessment requires interdisciplinary collaboration and a narrative that paints a clear picture of the patient's status and leaves no doubt of how the patient meets qualifying criteria as terminally ill. This webinar will spell out how to write an excellent comprehensive assessment narrative as well as the narrative for each update to that comprehensive assessment. Learn to leave no doubt of your patient's eligibility and the medical necessity of the services you provide.

Learning Objective:

  • Successful participants will be able to identify what the narrative in the comprehensive assessment and each update thereto should include.
  • Attendees will be able to describe pitfalls to avoid in narrative documentation and the importance of timely accuracy in assessment narratives.
  • Participants will be ready to write convincing, accurate, timely narratives for comprehensive and update comprehensive assessments.

Target Audience:

  • Administrators
  • Clinicians
  • Managers
  • Nurses
  • Social Workers
