Summarising Medical Records & QOF Online Course over Zoom

This 3 hour course was developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic crisis and will be delivered online over Zoom.

The Summarising Medical Records & QOF course allows delegates to learn how to organise and summarise medical records.  It includes ‘off-line’ hands-on practical exercises using hard copy materials supplied to delegates before the session.

Delegates also learn associated abbreviations and appreciate confidentiality issues around medical records.  In addition the course enables delegates to understand the relevance of summarising in relation to the achievement of QOF clinical targets.

The practical lessons are discussed in the light of each delegate’s own practice protocol.
