  • Informed Consent and Treatment Agreement: Update your Paper and Process

    The current COVID-19 public health emergency has led to increased reliance on telemedicine for safely treating patients with controlled substances, and presents the perfect opportunity to perform a quick review of your Informed Consent and Treatment Agreement documentation and processes. This course will review basic informed consent and treatment agreement concepts, run through several case examples to reinforce the distinctions between informed consent and treatment agreement, and discuss necessary updates practitioners should make to their own consent and treatment agreement forms. The legal and medical worlds are changing rapidly because of known challenges with controlled substance abuse and diversion. We hope you join us!
