About the Event
We are facing unprecedented times, and we may need to sacrifice the ability to meet in person to the extent possible to protect public health— and in some cases, to comply with state orders. With the advancements in communication and information technologies, veterinary medicine may have an opportunity to increase our use of telehealth tools to benefit animal health. This program will increase your knowledge of the state and federal regulatory landscape, explain the legal and ethical challenges that may arise with the use of telehealth, and provide tips to employ best practices for quality care and patient safety.Learning
