Telepractice: Providing Professional Services Remotely
With the appropriate use of today’s information and telecommunication technologies, you can easily work with clients who live too far away to make frequent appointments, or in areas that lack trained clinicians. By remotely working with these underserved populations, you can provide greater follow-up after discharge while preventing secondary complications, resulting in improved quality of life for your clients.
You will be able to:
- provide a basic overview of telepractice communication technologies
- discuss the key challenges of delivering services and how telepractice can address these issues
- describe current telepractice applications
- outline current barriers to telepractice and possible solutions for overcoming them
