Record keeping is an essential part of kinesiologists’ practice. In the self-assessment and peer and practice assessment reports, record keeping is consistently identified as a top learning goal or area for improvement. Records provide the ability to track a patient/client's progression, determine future care/service needs and ensure accountability for the care/services provided. Records are also an important communication tool to allow others to understand the patient/client’s past and current status to facilitate safe and quality care/services.
Over the next few months the College will create a record keeping webinar – or series of webinars – designed for kinesiologists that covers the importance of record keeping in both clinical and non-clinical practice, and how to meet the College’s record keeping requirements.
How you can help
The College is looking for participants to join two or three, two-hour online working groups (to be scheduled based on your availability) to help create content for a record keeping webinar. You will work from the Essential Competencies of Practice, the Record Keeping Standard, assessment data, and practice inquiries to develop content and practice scenarios. Access the application form
