In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, there is a pressing need for psychology and neuropsychology to apply tele-communication technologies to deliver services to patients unable to attend in-person appointments. Encouragingly, new evidence is emerging to support development of novel models of psychological and neuropsychology service delivery remotely. This webinar will illustrate the many opportunities and challenges of Telepsychology (TelePsy) and Teleneuropsychology(TeleNP) assessment, including focusing on ethical/legal issues during service provision as well as addressing practical needs for providers attempting service delivery remotely.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the evidence base and strengths/weaknesses supporting TelePsy and TeleNP procedures and models
  2. Analyze the potential feasibility of tele-communication procedures within their own professional settings,
  3. Assess key legal and ethical considerations when providing TelePsy or TeleNP services.
