Since March 2020, psychiatrists have been practicing under flexibilities granted by state and federal governments. These flexibilities, made possible through the declaration of the Public Health Emergency (PHE), were intended to allow access to care during the PHE. The PHE will end at some point and along with it, these flexibilities. Join the Committee on Telepsychiatry and Committee on Mental Health Information Technology for an interactive session to learn more about the rules and regulations that will be back in place and to discuss what is needed in your practice to operate successfully in a hybrid environment.
Psychiatrists have been practicing for two and a half years in an environment regulated by temporary waivers. These waivers have changed the way patients are receiving care and the way psychiatrists are providing care. APA members will have an opportunity to learn about changes once the PHE ends, and how they can continue to practice in a way that meets the needs of their patients and within the rules and regulations of practice.
