What Are Treatment Plan Forms?

Treatment plan forms are documents that provide authorization for treatments, contain details of the patient's problems and the practitioner's goals, and help plan a specific treatment, according to About.com. They contain specific goals and the progress that the patient makes with each session of therapy.

Treatment plan forms are used for different fields of practice, such as dentistry, psychiatry and chiropractic treatments. These forms list clear details about the participation of the patient in the treatment and the goals of the treatment. They help monitor the participation of others in the treatment and how their role has helped in reaching the desired goals. The frequency, duration and authorization details are mentioned in these forms, according to About.com. Each private practitioner or hospital may have its own custom-made treatment plan form.
