Can I use my smartphone to take a picture during patient care? Can we use that new app we just downloaded? Can we begin our TelePT/TeleRehab Clinic tomorrow? These and other questions will be reviewed in this interactive discussion of legal and ethical issues around the use of technology in the clinical setting. In addition, we will discuss how these options can be very positive for everyone involved.

In this presentation, we will discuss potential ramifications of each scenario, along with methods to minimize risk. Our goal is to help PTs and PTA’s everywhere to proceed forward with the use of technology to improve their care even further.

We have three scenarios planned for this discussion, related to the questions noted above. Even so, we will ‘pause’ after the second scenario to take questions from attendees and address any related scenarios.  


Educational points/Learning Objectives:

1)      Describe potential causes for conflicts resulting from fast advancement of clinical technologies

2)      Discuss the legal and ethical implications for pertinent clinical situations

3)      Identify useful legal/ethical ways to utilize the technology in question in each scenario

4)      Recognize need to address legal/ethical violation in technology use in clinical practice
