Presented by The Trust and The Trust Practice and Risk Management Association (TrustPARMA)


Webinar Description:

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law in 2010, offers psychologists opportunities as well as challenges.  This webinar will provide an overview of the ACA.  We will discuss evolving models of integrated care – a cornerstone of healthcare reform that provides an opportunity for psychologists to integrate into the larger healthcare milieu and to position themselves in a leadership position in emerging healthcare systems.  We need to be able to define what competencies we do possess and how they add value to these systems of care, and ethical as well as risk management considerations will be noted.  Detailed roadmaps that some psychologists have traversed will be presented as you consider potential avenues of change for your clinical practice.


Learning Objectives:

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Describe basic changes that will occur in healthcare reform with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
  • Enumerate competencies within the repertoire of professional psychologists that add value to healthcare provider teams.
  • Discuss ways in which psychologists have integrated their clinical practices into emerging healthcare environments.
