Course 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 series which will 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
