This webinar brings together a panel of experts to explore common legal issues within clinical education. Specifically, a case-based approach will be used to discuss:
- How to be confident that you can dismiss a student.
- Legal issues around common accommodations in clinical education.
The panel will then address participant questions related to contemporary issues in PT clinical education, such as: criminal background checks, telehealth supervision, medical/legal marijuana use, COVID (exposure and vaccine; potential resultant delayed graduation and legal ramifications).
- Identify when it is necessary to reach out to general counsel and when it is not.
- Be able to explain the importance of policy and procedure in clinical education.
- Be able to justify the University’s stance on marijuana use and ability to participate in the clinic (including in states where there is legal use).
- Be confident that the institution is in appropriate legal standing when dismissing a student.
- Be able to revise/draft your current policy and procedures based on what are considered reasonable accommodations in clinical education.
