Successes and Failures in Telehealth conference goes virtual
The annual Successes and Failures in Telehealth (SFT) conference will be held virtually this year due to the uncertainty over cross-border travel due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
Despite being planned originally as a face-to-face event, the conference organisers at the Centre for Online Health at the University of Queensland and the Australian Telehealth Society (ATHS) will now hold it virtually in November.
The conference will be held between November 3 and 5, with the first day involving four workshops covering biostatistics in telehealth evaluations, funding for digitally enabled aged care, what works in telehealth, and how to conduct economic evaluations for telehealth services.
The main program covers the gamut of traditional telehealth provision for rural health, allied health, specialty services and mental health, along with new areas such as telerehabilitation and telepharmacy.
New ATHS president Kim Ford, from the Tasmanian Department of Health, will present on the use of telehealth for remote monitoring in the same building, discussing how her department monitored seasonal workers undergoing quarantine in Hobart over the last several months.
