Telepsychiatry – Managing the Mayhem

December 5, 2020 from 10 AM - Noon

Via Zoom 


 Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of psychiatrists in clinical practice.


Program Overview

During the COVID-19 pandemic, remote treatment has suddenly become the way psychiatrists are treating patients.  Most psychiatrists have not utilized remote treatment prior to the pandemic.  Even those experienced with telepsychiatry are finding that the regulatory rules are changing.  This course will briefly review the legal and clinical basics of telepsychiatry, regulatory changes in response to COVID-19, and planning for telepsychiatry post-COVID.  The course will also clarify the prevalent misinformation about telemedicine.
