Book review of D. Wiger (1997). The clinical documentation sourcebook: A comprehensive collection of mental health records of practice forms, handouts and records. Chichester: Wiley
Carr, Alan
This clinical documentation source book was written to meet the need of North American mental health practitioners for a system of documenting their work within the context of managed care systems. Within such management care systems in order to be reimbursed practitioners must show that services are necessary, and that the assessment and treatment procedures are appropriate to the disability and level of impairment shown by clients. The impact of treatment on the clients' level of functioning must be regularly documented and specific goals and criteria for discharge must be specified.
