Sometimes consultation can be helpful to an agency or practice group when devising practice-wide policies, forms, or protocols, or in making administrative decisions about whether to impose uniform ethical procedures.
For group practices, or in agency settings, we can focus on such possibilities or problems specific to your practice group/agency, or help your group or team problem-solve about policies and decisions specific to your setting. Examples might include:
If we change certain policies, what might be the ethical and legal consequences?
Should we standardize our intake conversation about limits of confidentiality?
Should we all follow uniform practices when faced with legal demands for disclosure?
Are we dealing ethically with the demands of managed care in our practice?
Are we adequately training our non-clinical staff to uphold ethical standards in this workplace?
