Assessment via telepractice: general guidelines
The use of assessment tools is a key area of study within the larger telepractice landscape. As professionals begin to adopt any new service delivery tool or model, it is imperative that they consider all the surrounding issues related to this change in service delivery method.
In general, the appropriateness of use of a specific assessment tool in the context of telepractice should be considered carefully. First, you are responsible for checking local laws and regulations for your clinical practice. Second, you should refer to guidelines from your professional association (e.g. BPS, RCSLT, RCOT) for further recommendations including ethical implications. Please see here for a link to the BPS guidance.
> The British Psychological Society (BPS)
> Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT)
> Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT)
> UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
Finally, you may use the information provided by Pearson on specific products to assist you in your clinical decision-making.
