Spinal Injury Documentation Made Simple Through Accurate Injury Understanding

This will be a live virtual event offered during SE Regional - Virtual Event

Spinal injury documentation has been over complicated due to a reduced understanding of spinal injuries in the first place.  The severity and the location of any spinal injury needs to be fully understood, as this alone drives the foundation of all spinal injury documentation itself.  This class will drive the desire for better spinal injury understanding so that the diagnostics, treatment approaches, best practices, and care guidelines make sense as well!  This of course will lead to better patient treatment outcomes, less insurance/attorney reimbursement issues and reduced stress. Proper documentation of the injury itself is the key!
