Social workers are frequently on the front lines of quick decision making. Given this role, they may need protection from licensing complaints about their treatment and advocacy decisions for clients. Accurate documentation in the clinical record, including notes made during treatment, can protect social workers from accusations
of violating ethical standards for social work practice. This presentation will highlight the direct relationship between clinical documentation and the NASW Code of Ethics. Discussion will include review of ethical medical record and confidentiality standards. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to uphold social work values and apply them to practice as training aims to standardize clinical documentation and decrease ambiguity and risk.
Members of the NASW/CT Ethics Committee will lead the discussion including Yvette Tyndale, LCSW, ACSW, Chair, and Amber Borges, LCSW, ACHP-SW, Catherine Hogan, LCSW, Suzanne Rosenberg, LCSW, and Staff member Steve Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW.
