  • Be as exact in wording as you can, however, you CANNOT tape record.
  • Template includes 1 Interaction page, but please replicate as many as needed to record the entirety of the interaction.
  • Use page numbers for each.
special notes
  • When doing a process recording, care must be taken to disguise identifying information (in accordance with HIPAA regulations) to protect client confidentiality and privacy.
