Webinar: Reading Medical Records: What You Need to Know Without "Googling" Every Term

July 29, 2020, 3:00 p.m. Eastern, 90 minutes

Webinar Faculty:  Tara Godoy, BSN RN CFN LNC

About the Webinar:  Medical Records can be daunting for any criminal attorney or investigator to review. The purpose of the presentation is to assist attorneys in focusing their review of medical records and to focus on review of records that contain the information that both civil and criminal attorneys are commonly seeking. To make it relevant and interesting, the records included in this presentation follow an attempted murder case and highlight not only what is in the records but also what might be missing.
