Telehealth Community Chats


On-Demand Webinars (Non-Sequence) – The Trust

Telehealth Community Chats are available as a live and on-demand webinar. They are designed to address the needs of psychologists and mental health clinicians. These discussions consist of Trust Telehealth consultants, Dr. Margo Adams Larsen and Dr. Sara Smucker Barnwell, discussing practical and ethical aspects of telehealth in times of quarantine, rapid regulatory changes, and patient care.

In these Chats, the hosts will focus on the practical “how to” questions related to telehealth, and will span themes such as clinical practice, ethical considerations, technical considerations, and risk management. Participants are encouraged to raise their own questions and concerns for discussion by submitting questions beforehand to TeleHealthCommunity@trustinsurance.com. These Chats are designed to complement the Risk Management Roundtables.

Trust policyholders can combine 6 or more credit hours earned from each live or on-demand event in our Virtual Webinar Series and save 15% on their Trust Sponsored Professional Liability insurance policy for two consecutive renewal periods.
