Workshop Description:

Technology is advancing at a dizzying pace and is becoming increasingly central to the provision of psychological services. From portable devices to digital records to interjurisdictional practice to mental health apps, technology has brought remarkable benefits to our work: and at the same time created an increasingly complex set of ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges. In this rapidly evolving environment, the need to maintain an active risk management strategy is perhaps even more central than ever. 

This workshop is a next-generation discussion of digital world issues. After a brief introduction describing The Trust Risk Management Philosophy and Strategy, this workshop will provide a review and update on the ethical, legal, and risk management dimension of technology. We will focus broadly on these issues related to digital media. The workshop is applicable to all sites where health services are provided.

Course Objectives:

  • Summarize The Trust's Risk Management Philosophy, Including Strategies for identifying high risk situations and managing professional practice risks.
  • Develop and review strategies for managing digital record keeping challenges.
  • Describe risks regarding emerging approaches to telepsychology practice.
  • Identify strategies for managing online and social media risks.

101 Bills That Passed And Failed: A Digest Of What You Missed In The 2018 Colorado Legislative Session, From Taxes To Crime To Transportation

Posted: May 21, 2018

Colorado lawmakers introduced more than 700 bills in the 2018 legislative session covering a wide range of topics – from transportation to taxes and
school safety to health care.

There were even measures considered by the Democrat-controlled House and the Republican-led Senate that covered the business of selling body parts, protections for police horses and the delivery of marijuana. The majority of the legislation was not controversial and offered minor tweaks to current law, but the debate on dozens of bills came down to the final hours before the General Assembly adjourned Wednesday.

If you’re wondering what you missed, here’s a look at a sample — 101 bills that passed or failed in the 120-day term. Gov. John Hickenlooper still
needs to act on many of them.
