In this new edition, there is an additional focus on all areas of documentation, not just SOAP notes, including chapter 4 s general guidelines for documentation This book was primarily designed to help with one important aspect of clinical instruction: teaching documentation. Thus, it is mostly for educators and students but can be a valuable addition to a department receiving students on placement or for therapists wanting to improve their documentation skills.
