Well-written goals and objectives keep treatment on target and measurable, and assist with justification of services.
Introduction to Writing Goals and Objectives offers the basic techniques that students, interns, and entry-level professionals need to gain confidence when developing and writing goals and objectives with their clients and patients through a simple process.
The exercises and case studies in this manual offer scenarios to help users build confidence by practicing the fundamentals of better documentation that will serve patients, recreation therapists, hospitals, community settings, and outside reviewing organizations.
