Week 8 SOAP Note Assignment

 This week, you will submit a SOAP note.

  1. Select a “patient” (friend or family member) on whom to perform a complete H&P.
  2. NOTE: DO NOT USE REAL NAMES OR INITIALS OR OTHERWISE IDENTIFY YOUR “PATIENT.” FAILURE TO MAINTAIN PRIVACY WILL RESULT IN A FAILING SCORE.
  3. Using the format specified below, write a 1 to 2 page SOAP note on your “patient.” The HPI should be presented in a paragraph, and the rest of the data including the ROS should be presented in a list format.
  4. Collect only the information that is pertinent to the chief complaint of the patient to include in your SOAP note. Aim for a single page using normal margins and format.
  5. The SOAP Note must contain all required elements as outlined in the rubric below.
  6. You must self-score your SOAP note using the rubric and attach it to the assignment.
