Telepsychiatry is reaching maturity as a field, and increasingly is being used in both individual providers and organizations to increase both the quality and availability of mental healthcare, particularly for underserved populations. This session will educate mental health professionals about the 7 most common and critical issues in developing, administering, and providing clinical telepsychiatry services. These “7 perils” include navigating regulatory issues; developing fiscally sustainable services/programs; building an effective virtual team; attending to the interface of cultural and technology; handling psychiatric emergencies; management of the virtual doctor-patient relationship; and growing services beyond a pilot clinic. Dr. Shore will focus on identifying key issues related to these perils, and pragmatic approaches to successfully addressing these challenges.
