  • Hello, due to our speaker being under the weather at the moment, we are going to have to postpone part 4 of this webinar series until Thursday, July 9, 2020. The time will be the same, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. EST.  I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.


  • • Are you weary of documentation headaches?
  • • Does your documentation take place at the end of the day or even the next day because it’s too time-consuming to complete right away?
  • • Do you struggle with physicians to get what you need without alienating them and their referrals?

This 4-part webinar series is aimed at nurses, therapists, social workers, aides, administrators, quality improvement staff and anyone who wants their patients to come first and not the documentation!

Prepare your questions, concerns and documentation examples of what makes you worry and keeps you from sleeping well. Let’s learn from each other and go home at the end of the day with confidence on how to make documentation right the first time and leave those worries behind!
