Tele­health Online Learn­ing Program

The Tele­health Online Learn­ing Pro­gram is avail­able free of charge through the eRe­mote elearn­ing platform.

The pro­gram com­pris­es of nine mod­ules which will take up to four hours to com­plete. Cer­tifi­cates will be award­ed upon com­ple­tion of each sep­a­rate mod­ule as well as the final cer­tifi­cate not­ing CPD hours.

There will be var­i­ous resources in the online learn­ing mod­ules that can be print­ed and adapt­ed for use in a vari­ety of clin­i­cal set­tings. These resources include a range of;

  • Down­load­able checklists
  • Tem­plates of run­ning sheets, let­ters, emails
  • Eti­quette con­sid­er­a­tions when con­duct­ing online video consultations
  • Trou­ble shoot­ing — tip sheets on coordinating
  • Tele­health ser­vices and prac­ti­cal solu­tions to tech­ni­cal issues
  • Instruc­tion­al video pro­vides detailed infor­ma­tion on con­duct­ing Tele­health online video consultations

Through­out the online learn­ing mod­ules there are links to many use­ful and rel­e­vant resources and web­sites. Upon com­ple­tion of the mod­ules there is an eval­u­a­tion of the course, to enable fur­ther devel­op­ment of the pro­gram to meet the needs of participants.

Tele­health Guide­lines & Standards

The Tele­health Stan­dards for Nurs­es & Mid­wives and the Guide­lines for Tele­health Con­sul­ta­tion are now avail­able as a pdf below.

These doc­u­ments were devel­oped through the Com­mon­wealth fund­ed Tele­health Nurs­ing & Mid­wifery Consortia.

The Stan­dards for Reg­is­tered Nurs­es & Mid­wives are for­mat­ted against the Aus­tralian Nation­al Com­pe­ten­cy Stan­dards and pro­vide addi­tion­al cues spe­cif­ic to Tele­health in its broad­est application.

Note that the Nurs­ing & Mid­wifery Tele­health Con­sor­tia Guide­lines are broad in nature and in ref­er­ence to Video con­sul­ta­tions only and in rela­tion to the Tele­health Med­ical Ben­e­fits Schedule.

If you have any spe­cif­ic inter­est in this area and would like to know more about the project please con­tact professional@​crana.​org.​au.
