Focused Soap Note



focused SOAP note is a written record of your encounter with a patient that only assesses those systems that pertain to the complaint. The purpose of writing episodic SOAP notes is to ensure you meet competencies related to gathering problem-specific health histories and synthesizing physical examination data needed to formulate a plan of care. Through this assignment, you will gain experience in formulating a plan based upon specific patient information and communicating the plan in a clear and organized manner.

When completing your SOAP note:

  • Your patient should be at least 50 years old and have at least one chronic health problem.
  • Be sure to complete ALL parts of the plan, whether they apply or not. For example, if you do not need to assess a particular system, write “Deferred” in the associated blank. For another example, if it is not necessary to refer your patient, be sure to write “None” next to referral. In sum, do not leave blanks on any parts of the plan!
  • Do NOT document “WNL” (within normal limits) or “unremarkable.” Be sure to describe your findings appropriately, even if normal.
  • You should use at least two scholarly resources to obtain the necessary clinical information to develop the assessment and treatment plan. You may use your Dains’ textbook and one other scholarly reference of your choice. Format your references in APA format.
  • Refer to the assignment rubric prior for more specific details.

Remember cultural competence! Avoid stereotyping an individual based on age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, or behaviors. Care should be taken to assess family, social, cultural beliefs that may impact health beliefs and practices. For individuals with language barriers, an interpreter should be available for best practice.
