ATPP 515 - Medical Terminology and Patient Care Documentation in Athletic Training


(2 hours) Prerequisites: Admission to the ATPP program. This course will focus on learning appropriate medical terminology and contemporary written documentation strategies in patient care. Medical terminology includes body organization and anatomical directions and commonly used medical abbreviations.  This information is used in conjunction with patient care documentation. Proper and effective written medical documentation is important in communicating with patients, colleagues, physicians, administrators, and parents or family members. Patient care documentation strategies include note types (initial evaluation, progress or re-evaluation, daily note, rehabilitation and treatment logs, referrals, discharge, and release of information), note formatting (SOAP, HOPS/HIPS, SBAR, and POMR), and note charting (narrative and focus). This course cannot be challenged.
