With the cell phone, tablets, home computers, and the internet social services and health care have undergone radical changes in the last two decades. This webinar will examine ethical and professional practice issues related to this evolution in methods of communication. Use of internet searches on clients, communication via texting, the use of blogs and help sites, friending on social media sites, will be discussed along with things which may require the development of program policies and/or standards.
Staff of all disciplines are encouraged to attend.
After participating in the webinar, participants will be equipped to:
1. Articulate five key ethical principles relative to decision-making;
2. Articulate key issues relative to doing internet searches on clients or potential clients;
3. Discuss issues involved in “friending” both current and former clients.
