    Learning Objectives:
    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    Describe relevant patient privacy protections and compliance requirements when using technology to deliver telepsychology services with neurologic, medical, or disability populations.
    Identify at least 2 ways to ensure confidentiality and privacy during outpatient individual or group telepsychology visits. 
    Describe at least 3 strengths or ways telepsychology has reduced barriers for neurologic, medical, or disability populations, AND 3 barriers that should be examined by the practicing psychologist prior to initiating use of technology.
    Describe technical, ethical, legal, and diagnosis specific clinical considerations that should be examined and identified prior to initiating outpatient telepsychology or teleneuropsychological assessment.

     
    PODCAST SUMMARY
    As of July 2022, 34 States have enacted PsyPact legislation with 31 fully effective participating states.  After COVID-19, the participation of states and professionals in PsyPact grew considerably and continues to expand across the country.  
     
    The ability to use telepsychology to practice across state lines and expand practice has brought many benefits for patients and providers. However, there are distinct and vital competencies, ethics, and standards that must be addressed, implemented, and maintained. This is particularly true for telepsychology practices (including virtual neuropsychological assessments) with neurologic, medical, and disability populations. Although this technology can break down transportation and geographic barriers, some individuals may require additional assistance to properly utilize telepsychology services.The PsyPact Bundle is a continuing education podcast course series in which we look at the various advantages and requirements of telepsychology for neurologic, medical, and disability patient groups. This course will cover:


    Available research and literature on telepsychology's application for neurologic, medical, and disability patient groups


    Telepsychology's use in outpatient care 


    Use of technology to increase mental health access for inpatient rehabilitation units and the medical ICU. 


    How family and care partner participation may be boosted with telepsychology


    Topics covered in this series will meet the criteria needed to satisfy PsyPact requirements, and APA/ASPPB/APAIT telepsychology guidelines. Specifically, established research, clinical cases, and lessons learned will be presented to cover the following topics:


    Ensure Competence of the Psychologist to utilize and practice telepsychology and/or tele-neuropsychology


    Standards of Care in the Delivery of Telepsychology Services in Rehabilitation and Neurologic Populations


    Informed Consent of Patient, especially when considering patients with cognitive impairment or dysfuncti

    PODCAST SUMMARY
    Adherence to disease modifying treatments (DMT), as well as health promoting behaviors, can have a major impact on prognosis and clinical outcomes in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). However, some studies demonstrate poor adherence, especially for injectable DMTs (only 41-88%). It is important for the psychologist treating an individual with multiple sclerosis to understand the different types of DMTs (e.g., injectable vs. oral vs. infusions). They should also understand barriers that may impact uptake or adherence, such as needle phobia, or worry about severe side effects such as progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) infection. Helping patients understand "shared decision making" in regard to medication, could lead to increased adherence due to increased sense of agency with the chosen medication. This course will teach psychologists and mental health providers about the different types of DMTs used by individuals with MS, common barriers to adherence, and the concept of patient-provider shared decision making.
    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    Differentiate between the different types of MS disease modifying medications. 
    Be able to describe to your patients the difference between disease modifying medications and symptom management in multiple sclerosis. 
    Identify at least two common treatment barriers and strategies for helping your patients overcome them. 

    You will hear from three experts:

    Bron Webster - Founder of Multiple Success, Lives with MS
    Ben Thrower, MD - Medical Director of the Andrew C. Carlos MS Institute at the Shepherd Center
    Aviva Gaskill, PhD - Clinical Psychologist
