Training Module: Telemedicine in Longterm Care Facilities

By mobilizing technology through the use of telemedicine as a tool to support care in place, the partnership of the long-term care facility and the local hospital can be leveraged, to more effectively and efficiently manage patients overall care, despite their being at increased risk for multiple comorbidities and more vulnerable to clinical decline leading to hospitalization. This module provides best practices and considerations in providing care to those in long-term care settings, with a closer look through a case study on maintaining daily care needs while managing the added barriers that come with a pandemic.
