The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that we have had to step away from ‘business as usual’ in primary care and find alternative ways to share information and communicate.
In this webinar, Australian GP Dr Amandeep Hansra and UK GP Dr David Triska, will share their experiences of implementing telehealth (phone, online and video consultations) and provide practical tips and advice based on their first-hand experiences.
This session is aimed at clinicians and will cover a range of issues related to preparing for and implementing telehealth, including:
- Engaging with staff and patients
- Redesigning workflow
- Potential modalities
- Overcoming challenges
- Tools and technology, and
- Lessons learned.
