Using telepsychiatry in your everyday practice !

Did you know that telepsychiatry has been used since the 1970s? Are you familiar with all its legal and administrative aspects?

Prof. Umberto Volpe and Prof. Donald Hilty have teamed up with experts in the field to create the EPA Telepsychiatry Toolkit, with the aim to provide mental health professionals with the basic standards of telemental health care: essential skills, advantages and contraindications, legal and administrative issues, emergencies, mobile modalities, patient’s privacy protection, etc. The up-to-date scientific literature and practical hints provided will give you an overview of the components of high quality telemental health care services in different settings.

It is free for EPA paid-up members! Find out more on the EPA Telepsychiatry toolkit on our e-Learning platform.
