  • Outline the rationale for retaining and maintaining clinical records
  • Outline the essential features of effective record keeping and documentation
  • Describe ways in which records can promote multi-agency working
  • Use a record audit tool in practice to support effective communication in the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme

This session should be completed in conjunction with the following two Healthy Child Programme sessions in module about communication, record keeping and inter-professional working:
