Many clinicians do not realize the complexities and considerations related to working with clients via telehealth that vary from traditional in-person services. In recent times, many of us have found ourselves offering telehealth services for the first time with little, or no, training and support. Whether it is due to geographical constraints, lack of transportation, convenience, or being ordered to stay home during a pandemic, clinicians can provide effective services via telehealth modalities. As it is considered to be clinically as effective as in-person services, this presentation will cover some basics of providing telehealth services through video.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to...
1. Identify aspects related to telehealth to include in Informed Consent
2. Learn best practices related to getting set up, providing services, and alternative modalities when video fails or is not available
