AzNMA Webinar

"Charting for Your Quality of Life - Efficiency, Safety, and Avoiding Common Pitfalls"
Presented by Dr. Courtney Cronin
Wednesday, September 5, 2018
6:00 pm to 7:00 pm -- Arizona Time (MST)

CMEs: 1.0 General

Taking thorough effective chart notes is an important part of any medical practice - and the dreaded task of every physician to complete at the end of a busy day/week/month.  This webinar will cover tips for efficiency and common pitfalls in charting (particularly those noted by the Licensing Board!).  We can better serve your patients and get you home earlier with efficient and effective charting!

Learning Objectives:

* Identify and avoid common pitfalls in charting, particularly those noted b the Board, including unclear diagnoses, unclear directions to the patient, unclear informed consent, etc.

* Identify efficient ways to chart in the room with the patient, including all necessary information, with a modicum of effort.  This includes digital records, templates, and other resources.

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Courtney Cronin received her pre-med Bachelor’s Degree from University of Arizona in 2002, and her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2006 from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.  She completed her Residency in Family Practice with SCNM.  Since 2007, Dr. Cronin has been in private practice with the Desert Wellness Center, and teaching at SCNM.  She has considerable experience in instruction, lecturing, patient care, and practice management.

In private practice, Dr. Cronin has focused on metabolic medicine, weight loss, hormone management (including thyroid/adrenal), natural pain management, stem cell therapies, and aesthetics.  This offers her patients the ability to look great and feel even better.   In the classroom, Dr. Cronin specializes in Clinical Practice.  She is passionate about helping students interact with their patients compassionately, while finding an accurate diagnosis.  Over time this has evolved into teaching physicians as well and offering weekend CME seminars focused on endocrinology, hormone management, weight loss, and more.
