Outcome Assessments: Acute vs. Chronic
By: Fetterman Events

Course Description

Outcome assessments are the gold standard of justification for treatment; whether that be at an elevated interval due to acute pain or dysfunction or at a reduced interval with minimal pain but persistent dysfunction.

Outcome assessments bridge that gap and justify care within the very diverse chiropractic community, reviewers, payors, insurance companies, judges and juries. Being well versed and able to utilize them is essential for patient care in the 21st century.

Dr. Darrach will review the different types of assessment tools beside Oswestry and NDI: what they mean and how to incorporate them into your everyday practice. Acute vs Chronic vs Maintenance/Wellness. Confusing these can put chiropractors at risk during post payment audits. Learn how to transition between each.
