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.
