On 25 February 2021, global telepsychiatry and digital mental health experts – Dr Davor Mucic, Dr Jay Shore and Dr Don Hilty – will deliver a 3-hour course on TELEPSYCHIATRY via Zoom webinar. This innovative and interactive course will provide participants the skills they need to ensure an effective experience for doctor and patient alike.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has emphasised now more than ever the need for remote psychiatric services. But while remote consultations may seem simple enough, they come with a range of issues that need to be properly addressed if they are to be truly effective. As many psychiatrists embark on providing remote services for the first time, they find themselves faced with a number of questions:
How should they set up their room and video equipment?
What are some of the ethical, cultural and communication considerations when working online?
Do they need to vary their approach for different settings?
What are some of the legal, regulatory and technological issues they need to watch out for?
This course will address these questions and many more. Don’t miss out on learning what you need to know to ensure you can deliver your patient the best possible experience.
