Telehealth- 20 Hour Short Course

This course has been developed for professional development, or staff training, for anyone working in the health industry, including doctors and nurses, counsellors and alternative therapists, pharmaciststs, administration staff, and others.

‘Telehealth’ as an umbrella term for a range of services, which are also known as TECS (Technology Enabled Care Services).

Telehealth is a generic term used to describe different technologies provided to meet the health needs of individuals, as well as training of healthcare workers, and meetings of healthcare professionals and administration staff. Components of telehealth can include providing remote care services for people who are less capable of travelling to appointments:

  • Telecare – remote care for less able people or vulnerable people e.g. elderly, disabled, learning disabilities, etc. 
  • Telehealth for people with chronic conditions – enabling individuals with long-term conditions to self-manage e.g. blood pressure, blood glucose monitors, people with COPD, diabetes, heart disease, etc.
  • mHealth – more flexible services that can be accessed by mobile phone or computer apps. 
  • Assistive technologies (environmental controls) – services allowing people to carry out daily activities such as opening curtains, turning on lights or TV, using computers, etc. e.g. for people with severe disabilities to enable them to function more independently. \
  • Telemedicine – use of different types of technology and telecommunications to enable practitioners to support patients, provide remote care, and share information with other professionals typically by video call. It may be used for diagnoses, prescriptions, discussing x-rays, and so forth. It is often used in acute health services. 
  • Telenursing – enables nursing staff to provide remote services, etc.
