Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Health Education England to develop an elearning programme on remote consultations as part of a wider training recovery programme.
The resource consists of practical tips for educators and learners in medical and allied healthcare professions, to provide a generic ‘one-stop’ practical guide on remote consultation.
The session is designed to complement existing specialty and professional specific resources available from elfh and other education platforms.
Remote Consultations highlights the process of setting up a remote consultation clinic and the pitfalls in this environment with specific emphasis on appropriate patient selection, plus the benefits and limitations of remote consultations.
On completion of the programme learners will achieve several skills including:
- Describing the benefits and limitations of a remote consultation
- Describing requirements needed and discussing patient selection
- Describing measures in ensuring patient remote consultation
A suite of resources for trainers and trainees is also available for learners to access, including relevant links to websites, videos and papers.
