Sometimes, the amount of information coming from a provider to the patient can be overwhelming, and in the heat of the moment, it&#39;s easy for patients to forget all the questions they meant to ask the provider. Volunteer medical note-takers can help members organize their questions and then accompany them to appointments to take careful notes and make sure the appointment has a two-way flow of information.<br /><br />This notetaking training provided by the Executive Director of Northwest Neighbors Village, DC, is open to volunteers from all DC area villages. BMAV volunteers are welcome to join to learn this skill and offer it as part of rides to medical appointments. Those who have not yet volunteered but would like to provide this particular service are also welcome to register. <br /> <br />Learning Objectives:<br /><br /> Understand why medical notes matter in today&#39;s healthcare environment<br /> Understand the role of the medical note taker<br /> Understand the differences between medical note taking and medical advocacy<br /> Understand how confidentiality and HIPAA guidelines are applied<br /><br />RSVP to required. Training materials can be provided to those who cannot attend.
