Telehealth Community Chats


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

Telehealth Community Chats are available free of charge 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.

Each part is free to all Trust policyholders and CE will be issued for participating and passing a brief exam. 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. Please submit your CE certificates when you renew your policy.

Descriptions and learning objectives are listed below. Both live and on-demand versions offer 1 CE. Please click on the live event date and time to register. Each live event must be registered for separately. To view the on-demand version, simply click on the Chat number below.
