Telehealth and Rehabilitation in Rural and Remote Australia

The project aimed to improve the knowledge, linkage, peer support and networking of health practitioners managing patients with disabilities in rural Australia.
It consisted of two videoconferences, a workshop and four presentations on:

  • How to set up and conduct telemedicine in rehabilitation
  • Current technologies
  • The future possibilities in this field

Videos of all events are available along with links to useful resources and downloads. 
The project would not have been possible without the assistance of Dr Jeremy Christley, Prof Maria Crotty, Dr Penelope Smith, Dr Elizabeth McDonald and Dr David Douglas.
