Welcome to this site created to provide clinicians with evidence-based practice resources to implement telehealth services. We believe this information will also be of value to health sciences educators and students.
The College of Nursing incorporates telehealth across nursing curricula with innovative techniques, tools, strategies and learning environments to prepare students for the delivery of healthcare. Our commitment to telehealth has been based on the evidence that virtual delivery of care is correlated with improved access to care, positive health outcomes, cost savings and patient satisfaction. With the outbreak of COVID-19, this commitment has taken on greater significance.
Using telehealth as a component of primary care, chronic care management and support for behavioral health has the potential to significantly decrease exposures and health disparities for individuals who have limited ability to access care during this pandemic. For that reason, the CON is providing links to valuable resources, and is providing continuing education regarding telehealth free of charge.
