Telehealth is the use of telecommunication technology to deliver virtual services enhancing: healthcare, public health and health education delivery and support.
As part of the Three Rivers program, telehealth was identified as a long term emerging service delivery method that all health professionals including undergraduate students should to be familiar with and have an opportunity to learn about telehealth that aligns with their clinical practice.
The telehealth initiative aims to:
- provide telehealth education and training to students and discipline groups
- graduate telehealth-enabled students who can deliver appropriate care to our rural communities
- support the increased use of telehealth in health service delivery.
Our open access online education course covers the key concepts of telehealth.
