We have amended slightly the formal guidance on remote working, so that it addresses the question of carrying out assessments remotely. Click here to see the Updated Guidance on Remote Working
. The changes are on pages 4 and 5.
Whilst some members may be deciding only to continue working with children and families they were already seeing prior to the COVID-19 crisis, it is clear that it is possible and may be necessary to undertake some assessments remotely and, where appropriate, to commence treatment.
We have drawn up Further Guidance on Remote Assessment to support those members undertaking assessments remotely to do so safely and effectively and to consider whether offering an assessment remotely is clinically indicated. This advice is being provided via this email to members only and will not be available on the website.
