Teleheath for specialists and generalists at Rural Medicine Australia 2012

A full-day session at Rural Medicine Australia 2012 in Fremantle will showcase ethical and effective use of telehealth by generalists and specialist.

This is the ideal forum for clinicians and telehealth support staff to consider all the options for utilising telehealth to improve and expedite specialist care for their patients, and enhanced shared care arrangements for patients.

For specialists, the conference is a rare opportunity to personally discuss your services and modus operandi with hundreds of rural generalists.

For generalists (Medical, Nursing) the conference provides the opportunity to explore models of telehealth practice which are currently working for the benefit of patients.

For technology providers the conference provides the opportunity to meet with clinicians to promote solutions within the context of rural and remote practice

For Health and Education planners the conference provides the opportunity to understand the barriers and enablers which determine the effective use of technology to bridge distance in providing access to care for patients and educational support for clinicians.

The ACRRM TeleHealth event is one of six streams on the first day of the conference, Friday 26 October. 

On Day Two, Saturday 29 October, a selection of the 40 papers to be presented in the scientific forum will discuss current research into telehealth in rural practice.

If you are maintaining procedural skills, the conference is preceded by three days of one-day and two-day procedural workshops, include emergency medicine, EM ultrasound, EM obstetrics, and burns management.
