Termination is a necessary part of every clinical relationship and can present clinicians with unique challenges and risks. This webinar will address the ethical and risk management aspects of termination, examines unique difficulties encountered in different termination contexts (including those that may occur when ending or transferring care during the Covid-19 pandemic), and provides strategies for minimizing risk.
- Describe at least two ethical obligations related to termination, and explain what constitutes abandonment.
- Identify four steps of ethically appropriate termination.
- Apply specific risk management strategies to different termination contexts to reduce risk.
