This course aims to develop a guideline on the modality of Telehealth in mental health, social work, and psychology practices. Telepsychology's growth inspired the need to develop the handbook on the modality in the general psychology community. Its growth has caused greater attention towards its unique legal and ethical considerations within the practice.
The guideline is developed by analyzing some of the inherent legal and ethical issues within the practice field. Some inherent legal issues include licensure, clinical practice liability coverage, billing/payment, competence, client welfare, consent, confidentiality, and boundary navigation. This guideline summarizes the analysis's critical consideration in Telehealth in psychology, social work, and mental health discipline.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Define what Telehealth is
- Understand the ethical principles of telehealth
- Ensure the clinician has the necessary technology for a telehealth practice
- Discuss the core values of Telehealth
- Review best practices of Telehealth
- Determine if Telehealth is appropriate for the practitioner’s skillset
- Teach patients on what Technology is needed regarding Telehealth
