Pieces of papper with different colours, hanging from clothespins. Each papper is written with a letter and they form the word Goals

Goal setting in the therapy process

A therapist’s daily routine does not include only the therapy sessions, as many may believe. The professional responsibilities of therapists, cutting across all specialties, essentially involve extensive documentation work that incorporates record-keeping, collecting, organizing and storing of data, etc.

So, after completing the evaluation process and recording the areas the patient is under or overperforming, the next stage is setting goals. To do so, we take note of the areas in which the patient underperformed.

While this stage often confuses younger therapists, it is also a very time-consuming process both for their amateur and experienced counterparts.

The Synopsis app has been designed to facilitate the work of the therapist.

The way the process of setting goals is done through the app is easy and fast. After entering the evaluation results and the areas of underperformance, the therapist can choose the goals.

Initially, long-term goals are chosen. For example, for an occupational therapist, autonomy in clothing is a long-term goal. She then chooses the activities needed to achieve this goal, which are typically the short-term goals. In the example below, we would choose various activities, such as “wearing a shirt/pair of pants,” etc.

Since the therapist has immediate access to a detailed list of goals, goal setting can be completed in a few minutes with a quick search, either by writing a word or using some filters.

With a test of our app, you can see for yourself in practice how much your daily life can be facilitated and work streamlined.
