SOLD OUT! BCIA Ethics Webinar Presented by Don Moss
Friday, September 22, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM MDT
Category: Events

SOLD OUT!  The recording will be available on September 27th - check back for more details.

The workshop will provide an overview of medical ethics, ethical principles endorsed by most behavioral professions, and a discussion of the current AAPB, BCIA and ISNR standards. Violation of such guidelines, even when unintended, invites the risk of lawsuit, criminal prosecution, financial penalties, loss of licensure, and expensive and stressful legal and administrative reviews. The presenter will discuss relevant guidelines governing: entry level competence; scope of practice; the delivery of experimental or non-documented therapies; the informed consent process; principles of privacy, confidentiality, and privileged communication; guidelines on dual/multiple relationships; and questions of touch, privacy, and respect. The presenter will place emphasis on the imperative to maintain a positive treatment relationship, eliciting rapport and trust. The therapeutic relationship, along with knowledge of current standards of practice and adherence to professional guidelines, minimize the risk of misunderstanding and litigation. Finally, the session will review current standards for telehealth and infection risk mitigation.
