The ongoing worldwide public health emergency has sent unprecedented numbers of healthcare providers online. While new technology can provide us with powerful tools to continue to connect and communicate in this changing environment, many of us continue to encounter questions, challenges, and dilemmas when providing clinical services via telehealth.

This workshop is intended to meet law and ethics content requirements and to fulfill the Washington State Telemedicine Training requirements.

• Identify current Washington State and federal laws regarding telehealth;
