Commenter: Jane Yaun, for VACSB Regulatory Committee

Clarfication requested

1) Asking for clarification to the new language which requires adding a resident's license number to all written communication. (i.e 18VAC115-20-52 B. 10)  Does this  include clinical documentation/ notes? 

2) Same section: The added language regarding informing client that the "resident does not have authority for independent practice and is under supervision" while providing supervisor's name, professional address and phone number, may lead to unnecessary confusion by individual's served as to the qualifications.  Curious as to the rationale for the added language.  In addition, asking for clarification as to how often the client would need to be provided notice - assumption is only at start of services.
