Full course description
Case file documentation is vital for the VR Counselor and their agency. There are legal, audit, and supervisory issues that arise with case file documentation. This session explores those aspects but also emphasizes the ethical implications of case file documentation and how case file documentation methods can help drive a case and client to a successful outcome. DRIVE Notes is a model of case file documentation that was specifically developed for VR. The model helps VR Counselors to be systematic, thorough, efficient and effective in case file documentation that tells the story of the case, justifies actions taken, documents client engagement and informed choice, and drives the case toward competitive integrated employment.
