NEW CE: Telehealth and Telemedicine Legal and Ethical Considerations

04/20/2020 7:02 AM | Anonymous

We are facing unprecedented times, and we may need to continue to sacrifice the ability to treat our patients 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 use some of these new telehealth tools to benefit animal health.


This online continuing education will increase the participants’ 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.

This program has been approved for 2 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.
