This webinar will look at the legal risks of telepractice, and provide strategies on how to mitigate these risks. Telepractice is an increasingly growing field, and while useful, it also carries enhanced risks and requires a careful approach. Topics that will be discussed in this webinar include: the importance of physical location, pressure on scope of practice, privacy concerns, referrals, documentation, and an overview of relevant cases.
By the end of this webinar you will:
- Understand why your physical location, and that of your client, has legal implications;
- Appreciate the enhanced legal and medical risks inherent in telehealth;
- Gain insight into the key role of documentation
This is a replay of the September 18, 2019 webinar with live questions and answers at the end.
