The OAMHP now offers a self-directed online record keeping course specifically designed for mental health professionals.
Developed in-house with input from educators, practitioners and regulators, the comprehensive course covers requirements and standards of practice from government regulators and regulatory colleges. It includes the purpose of record keeping, the essential components of clinical records, how to meet the privacy requirements of PIPEDA, handling access to and disclosure of records, and much more. There is an optional free module for supervisors to help them understand how to document clinical supervision.
This course is the first of a series of online offerings to enhance our members’ understanding of and adherence to our standards of practice. Attendees earn five Continuing Education Credits (CECs).
