However, these tasks can also be accomplished through other CPST Components. Documentation must include elements of any of the other components, in addition to those specific to fidelity for the specific EBP. This means that a CPST provider may use techniques from one of the three (3) identified EBP’s and document that in the service intervention section of the progress note. Problems, triggers and solutions could be identified. Goals would be developed with the Member that fit within one of these EBP’s. Some of the requirements of the EBPs are not part of CPST requirements.
