Midwives and telehealth

One of the projects I am currently working on is the Telehealth Support Project. This is a collaborative project that the Australian College of Midwives is involved with , alongside several nursing organisations, which is funded by the Australian Department of Health and Aging.

My involvement is supporting the development of an online education package which will support midwives to think about how they can implement telehealth into their practice, either in hospital or as private practicing midwives. This should be up and running by May. I am also involved in developing midwifery standards for telehealth practice.

Do you use telehealth in your practice? How do you use it? What has been your experiences? What would you like to see embedded into standards for telehealth practice?

In my opinion, the emerging of telehealth right now has given a more positive impact and benefits especially to the health care industry. It helps our health care professionals to educate patients as well as help patients to be more proactive and efficient.
