He joins us from Honolulu, Hawaii where his practice Mind & Body Works, Inc. serves the children of the Hawaiian Islands, California and even Illinois. This method of reaching patients across expansive geographical boundaries can assist the practitioners of Oregon plan & develop ways to reach our underserved communities.
- Learn specific ways to build a tele-psychiatry tool-kit; reach patients in parts of Oregon, SW Washington and Northern California that are under-served, and help combat the lack of child & adolescent mental health care providers that plagues our rural communities.

The first presentation will examine liability issues in the integrated/collaborative care model that Oregon has focused on, as well as identifying risk reduction strategies for that setting. The second presentation will focus on liability issues when using telepsychiatry, as well as strategies to reduce the risk in our practices.
The seminar is open to current OCCAP and OPPA members, with pre-registration required and limited to 120 members. The seminar is presented and supported by the American Professional Agency, at no charges to OCCAP/OPPA members. This will be a networking opportunity for members of our two organizations.
