As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic there was a step change in the adoption of telehealth in physiotherapy with a sudden significant increase in its use. However, physiotherapists have been using telehealth successfully for many years in various clinical settings. This programme will focus on different aspects of telehealth including platform selection and related practical issues such as ethics, assessment and management.
The aim of this programme is to widen your understanding of telehealth and enable you to implement telehealth appropriately in physiotherapy.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
- Introduction to Telehealth
- Clinical Triaging and Practical Considerations in Telehealth
- Telehealth Technology Selection
- General Patient Assessment and Management in Telehealth
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
