The Joint Annual Review (JAR) is one of the most important tools in the counselor’s toolbox. The JAR is performed at least every 12 months. When performing a JAR with the consumer, review the consumer’s demographic information and the IWRP. Update any information that has changed. Review the consumer's progress in achieving the rehabilitation goal and determine whether you must set additional intermediate goals or adjust existing goals. Review the consumer's responsibilities and adjust as necessary.
Document the JAR in a case note in ReHabWorks. If the IWRP requires an amendment, explain how the changes are necessary to allow the consumer to achieve his or her rehabilitation goals.
