Starting this Saturday, ATA2016 offers a world of information to the behavioral health community. Join me for two pre-meeting certificate courses from 2 pm – 5pm on Saturday, May 14.
The two ATA2016 courses are :
A Framework for Training Providers of Telemedicine and e-Health: Competency-Based Education, Evaluation, and Implications
Standards and guidelines are excellent ways to provide telemedicine patients with great care however they are only one part of the “best practices” equation. One way of ensuring great care is to provide basic skill targets for tele providers – in medicine and other professions. We provide a framework of telemedicine competencies stratified into beginner, proficient, and expert levels – for primary care and specialty services. Learn more:
Coordinated by the ATA Telemental Health Special Interest Group
Can doctors prescribe controlled substances via telemedicine? The rules and regulations surrounding the prescription of controlled substances via telemedicine can seem confusing. Fear and uncertainty about these rules results in the failure of telemedicine to reach populations in areas of addiction, mental health and pain management. This course will provide a framework for interpreting the rules and regulations surrounding the prescription of controlled substances via telemedicine. This course features a discussion/Q&A with the Chief of Policy at the DEA Office of Diversion Control, as well as luminaries in the field of telemedicine.
I’m going to be a faculty member for both courses, and hope to see you there!
