Spreading the word about Telehealth
RAT group researchers Claire Bentley and Dr Jack Parker were invited to Sheffield Hallam University to deliver a workshop for district nursing students, introducing them to Telehealth and issues around its use.
The session included demonstrations of different healthcare technologies (Telemonitoring, an app for lung disease management) and a Question & Answer segment with Telehealth nurse Andrea Hague, in which she spoke about her experiences of delivering the service and the benefits and issues she has experienced.
Feedback from the students was very positive. This was the second workshop with Sheffield Hallam nursing undergraduates, and it is looking like an effective way to break down the awareness barrier among healthcare professionals around healthcare technologies.
