1-Hour On Demand Webinar

Have you heard about the recent “Model Act” developed by the US-based Federation of State Medical Licensing Boards to support telemedicine? Do you wonder how their model act can help you in the behavioral and mental health disciplines?

The time to act is now. The TeleMental Health Institute (TMHI) is pleased to offer the behavioral and mental health communities a webinar to help you understand why licensure is so important to the expansion of our work online, and what you can do to take advantage of the FSMB’s outstanding leadership with “licensure portability” to create movement in your own discipline NOW!

If you are tired of waiting for others to do something about licensure, you won’t want to miss this detailed explanation of:

  • what is going on
  • what it means for your profession
  • who else is working on your behalf
  • how you can make a difference by taking action now
  • specifically what to do to have your voice be heard

Learning Objectives:

  • Name the core tenets of the FSMB’s “Model Act” and describe what they mean
  • Identify why licensing boards are having difficulty approving national licensure
  • Intelligently discuss why the FSMB’s “Model Act” is pivotal for all health care professions, including the allied disciplines, such as counseling, psychology, social work & speech pathology
  • Name at least one way that licensure is crucial to reimbursement for online practice
  • Why calling yourself a “coach” to practice over state or province lines when you are licensed can get you in more trouble than it is worth
  • Explain how malpractice coverage can automatically be nullified if you ignore licensing laws, despite your carrier’s claims that you are “covered” for online practice
  • List at least four ways to keep abreast of these historical developments, including the single most powerful action you can take to create licensure portability movement in your own profession today!
