Munro Cullum, Ph.D., ABPP-CN is interviewed about teleneuropsychology and telemedicine in general. In the podcast, they distinguish between pre-COVID-19 teleneuropsychological evaluations, conducted in clinics and other controlled environments, and the current push for home-to-home teleneuropsychology. They also dive into the details of teleneuropsychology, including topics such as research evidence for feasibility, reliability, and validity of this methodology, patient acceptability, environmental challenges, patient privacy and informed consent, and trainee clinical hours, among others. Throughout the interview, Dr. Cullum summarizes the current literature and provides advice, tips, and guidance for interested researchers and clinicians.
This presentation will focus on the challenges and practical solutions to real telepsychology situations that have been presented to The Trust’s Advocate 800 Program’s risk management consultation service and will include insights and practical guidance from a psychologist who actively uses telepsychology in her practice.

The TMB Digital Neuropsychology Toolkit is a resource created by the Laboratory for Brain and Cognitive Health Technology at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School in collaboration with the Many Brains Project, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We have been providing resources for research neuropsychology since 2008 and have collected cognitive test data from 2.5 million people.
The purpose of these tests is not for diagnosis or medical treatment. Norms are available for ages 12-90 only.
This presentation is designed for psychologists practicing at all levels of expertise with respect to clinical tele-health services, and aims to teach participants: 1.) how to identify ethical and legal issues involved with providing psychological services across jurisdictional borders, 2.) understand the ways in which governors’ executive orders have temporarily changed standing laws regarding interjurisdictional practice during the COVID-19 crisis, and 3.) understand the status of PSYPACT with respect to participating states and upcoming dates of implementation.

Many Departments, with UPG’s guidance, have developed workflows to provide telemedicine encounters. These workflows can also be used by your residents and fellows for their Continuity Clinic patients with appropriate supervision. Both the ACGME (link above) and CMS (below) have provided additional, aligning guidance. The two most important issues regarding these rules are the following:
CMS Teaching Physician Regulations:
As more practitioners are increasingly being asked to assist with the COVID-19 response, on an interim basis, for the duration of the PHE for the COVID-19 pandemic, CMS is amending the teaching physician regulations to allow that as a general rule, the requirement for the presence of a teaching physician can be met, at a minimum, through direct supervision by interactive telecommunications technology. In other words, the teaching physician must provide supervision either with physical presence or be present through interactive telecommunications technology during the key portion of the service. Specifically, CMS believes that when use of such real-time, audio and video telecommunications technology allows for the teaching physician to interact with the resident through virtual means, their ability to furnish assistance and direction could be met without requiring the teaching physician’s physical presence for the key portion of the service.

West Virginia University School of Medicine is conducting a research study using an online survey to gain more insight into the response of behavioral/mental health providers during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are currently practicing in the behavioral/mental health field, they would greatly appreciate it if you would be willing to complete this survey and also share this survey with other behavioral/mental health providers if you are willing. Individuals aged 18 or older who speak English and work in the mental healthcare field are eligible to participate. Participation in this study is entirely voluntary, and you can discontinue participation at any time. Although there is no benefit to individual participants, the hope is that results of this study will help to inform practice and policy by characterizing mental health providers’ responses to this public health crisis.
The online survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete and is typically composed of multiple-choice questions. They look forward to compiling the results in order to disseminate their findings.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing challenges in many American Indian and Alaska Native communities and has created new challenges for tribes seeking to maintain traditions and customs, such as gathering together to grieve loved ones. Psychologists are helping to address these challenges through culturally-informed interventions and efforts to build upon tribes' resiliency and strengths. This webinar will feature some of these efforts, with the goals of increasing awareness of the pandemic's impact on Native American communities and the potential for psychology to assist in mitigating risks and collateral consequences associated with the pandemic. Part of the challenge to address the needs of American Indian and Alaska Native communities is to make their concerns more visible. Frequently left out COVID-19 reporting due to insufficient data collection, Native communities' concerns must be elevated in discourse regarding disparities exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic. This webinar is one small step toward that goal. Presented by John Gonzalez, PhD, Kyle Hill, PhD, LP, Vicky Lomay, PhD, Royleen Ross, PhD, & Brian Smedley, PhD
