Ethical and Legal Telehealth Practices for the Provider and Staff a Special Training from the APA
March 19, 2020
The American Psychological Association (APA) is providing an online learning opportunity for mental health staff and providers addressing the challenges of transitioning to technology supported systems of care. Keeping the Office Going: Ethical and Legal Telehealth Practices for the Provider and Staff will be held on March 20, 2020 at 11:00 Mountain.
The benefits and importance of being able to provide effective remote services to clients as well as keep an office running with staff is becoming more apparent as technologies improve, and potential risks such as severe seasonal influenza or coronavirus make remote provision of telehealth services and telecommuting more critical.
This two-hour webinar will address:
- how you can effectively deliver telehealth from home.
- clinical, legal, ethical and practical issues regarding adopting cooperative yet appropriate attitudes.
- Several viable telehealth models commonly used by home-based telepractitioners to comply with legal and ethical mandates, document their evidence-base, and get paid.
