Ethical and Technical Considerations for Teaching Clinical Skills in a Distance Learning Environment
October 19 - 21, 2022

Event Information

Registration Status: OPEN
Registration Ends: Wednesday, October 12, 2022

Course Description: The provision of clinical supervision through technology-assisted or online modalities has become increasingly available in recent years. These approaches have been due, in part, to restrictions on face-to-face meetings due to COVID-19, but also to improvements in technology and public acceptance of this type of interaction. Most elements of teaching clinical skills as part of professional training and supervision remain important in both face-to-face and distance environments. However, the on-line environment imposes additional rules, regulations and standards impacting both the practitioners and recipients of the services.
