Ethical and Legal Guidelines for Telehealth Service Delivery
Ethical and Legal Guidelines for Telehealth Service Delivery

Telehealth service delivery is becoming increasingly popular within the behavioral health field. A 2020 study indicates that up to 87% of behavioral health providers in the United States are providing telehealth services to their clients, which is a dramatic increase from 2019. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic expansion of telehealth services as providers continue to deliver care amid social distancing recommendations and mandatory closures.

This course will offer a blend of ethical and legal information, clinical vignettes, and strategies that can later be applied in therapeutic settings. The content of this course includes information about informed consent, confidentiality, privacy, boundaries, mandatory reporting, and rules for sharing information. The course assumes the learner has a basic understanding of telehealth technologies and formats. To learn more, you can search the Relias library for additional courses related to telehealth.

The goal of this course is to provide addictions professionals, behavioral health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, social workers, and nurses in health and human services settings with strategies and information for competent and ethical telehealth practice.
