Professional Development

Writing Effective Case Notes

Case notes are an effective tool to support your work. Good case notes help others to take over.

You might not work with your client forever. The case notes help you to pass on information to the next worker involved.But it’s not just about the information you pass on. It’s about the insight.

In this online workshop, you will explore various methods for taking effective case notes and consider the legal, ethical, and organisational issues.

It will provide practical strategies for you to improve note-taking, whilst enabling awareness of the requirements and obligations you have in this key area of case management practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify key elements of case records for ethical, legal and professional accountability requirements;
  • Ensure that the case notes are suitable for a range of purposes and work settings;
  • Demonstrate strengths-based case recording skills – including observation and interpreting, and
  • Use critical reflection in relation to what makes good record-keeping when working with children, young people, and their families.

Acknowledgement

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
