How do you know when your patient is "done"? How do you determine the length of a patient's care? Basing care on when the patient's pain disappears or even worse when their insurance coverage disappears is a recipe for disaster. Your plan of care should have an objectively identifiable beginning, middle and end. In this session you'll learn the evidence-based science behind the healing process and how use it to set a practical, easily communicated baseline of your patients' health status. With a thorough understanding of the science of healing, you can set your Criteria for Care. These objective measurements will allow you to objectively set goals for care and measure your patients' progress toward and the achievement of maximum improvement. Most importantly, it will establish the unshakable medical necessity for your care. This session takes the guesswork out of case management once and for all.
