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