From The CriticsReviewer: Keith Webster, MA, ATC (University of Kentucky)
Description: This book is unique in its focus on the importance of proper documentation in athletic training. This update contains information that was not available for the first edition in 2005.
Purpose: Documentation is constantly evolving — from paper to electronic databases — to reflect changing technology. This edition emphasizes the need to learn about electronic documentation and electronic medical records. It effectively describes how new technology can change how athletic trainers practice. It is a useful teaching tool, presenting different documentation formats.
Audience: Although designed for athletic training students, the book is also a valuable reference for athletic trainers. The authors are leaders in the area of athletic training and documentation.
Features: The book details various types and formats of documentation and covers writing styles, electronic formats, and documentation for reimbursement purposes. The material is presented effectively in well-organized chapters and the discussion issues and questions following each chapter are valuable. The examples in the numerous appendixes are also very helpful, and the forms are those that are actually used in athletic training settings.
Assessment: With its focus on the needs of the athletic training profession, this is a unique and helpful book. It uses a creative format that is easy to follow yet is still very thorough. This second edition is necessary as it addresses the technological advances that have occurred since the 2005 edition.
