COVID 19 related content: Most mental health professionals have attended or participated in various trainings regarding the "how to" conduct Telehealth. This presentation takes it a step further to review and discuss ethical decision making regarding when would telehealth be helpful vs. harmful.

Description: Telepsychology and Telehealth has been used for more than a decade, yet few practioners were using this modality, preferring in-person care. The majority of Teleheath service provision was reserved to access clients living in remote regions of Ontario.

The pandemic and stay-at-home orders have made telepractice a requirement for service delivery. Between March and June 2020, health providers have likely been inundated with trainings  to learn how to proceed with Teleheath. The aim of current session is to examine when to provide Telehealth services and an ethical decision-making framework.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify the risks and benefits of Telehealth
  • Ethical mental health issues related to telepractice will be identified
  • Participants will be provided with an ethical framework to help with decision-making when telehealth is appropriate
  • Case vignettes will be presented to highlight ethical issues and decision-making

Registration fee: $60.00
