Risk Management Roundtables


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

The unprecedented nature of the emergency, the rapidity with which clinicians have had to make significant changes to their practices, and the uncertainty and quickly evolving nature of regulatory and reimbursement requirements have created a great deal of anxiety and myriad challenging dilemmas for clinicians.

Risk Management Roundtables are available free of charge as a live and on-demand webinar. They are created specifically to meet the needs of psychologists and mental health clinicians during the time of the Coronavirus national emergency, and consist of several Trust Risk Management Consultants discussing and advising about ethical and risk management issues.

In these Roundtables, participants are encouraged to raise their own questions and concerns for discussion. Discussion and exploration of various risk management and ethical dilemmas will occur, with a focus on helping participants tease out the clinical, legal, ethical, and risk management factors as we all work to meet the best interests of our clients in this difficult time.

Descriptions and learning objectives are listed below. 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 Roundtable number.

Description & Learning Objectives

Together, participants will work to see the risk management implications of specific situations and choices, scrutinize options for resolution, and foster a tolerance for ambiguity and the understanding that there may be no single ideal solution to each challenge. We will also discuss strategies for effective risk management and good patient care when regulations and requirements are unclear.

  2. Participants will distinguish between ethical, professional practice (clinical and moral issues), risk management, or legal concerns.
  3. Participants will discuss, consult and review specific dilemmas that are arising in clinical practice as the result of the national emergency and share potential resolutions.
  4. Participants will gain an increased awareness of the risk management and ethical situations emerging in mental health practice at this time.

Objectives - Roundtable #2:

  1. Participants will apply current APA Ethical Principles and Standards to real-life scenarios.
  2. Participants will identify three risk management strategies.
