Can I prescribe medications via telehealth in NY State without seeing the patient in person?
This question is the jumping off point for an in-depth examination of telehealth platforms in the age of Covid-19.
We hear from NYSVMS lawyer, Frank Fanshawe, on the potential exposure to civil lawsuits and how to manage the risk. Dr. Doug Aspros, Chair of the NY State Board of Veterinary Medicine discusses what it means for VCPR to be in guidelines and not law.
We also have two perspectives on how much value telemedicine brings to the profession, with Dr. Hilary Jones from Teletails, and Dr. Howard Gittelman another member of the Board of Veterinary Medicine.
We continue telling the story of how veterinarians made a difference in the Hi Tor Animal Shelter, Pomona, NY.
In this episode we go into more depth about the work that veterinarians do at the shelter, and hear from the shelter leadership about how much difference that has made.
We take a look at how a veterinarian from Private Practice can make a difference in their community animal shelter, and we will learn about the difference perspectives on veterinary medicine that are used in a shelter.
We also provide pointers on how you can get involved and help the shelter in your local community.
