Ya learn somethin' new everyday! Chris
Here is the same link again: www.smart-words.org/word
"SOAP" notes are a style of documentation that
medical professionals use to record information about patients.
This acronym (SOAP) stands for (described in an abbreviated form):
subjective: The information the patient reports.
objective: Test results and observations.
assessment: The diagnosis of the injury.
plan: The next steps for treatmeant.
Often the Assessment and Plan sections are grouped together!
I feel so smart! chris
