Video Consultation Skills Course

Video consultation and adoption of technology has been a hot topic both clinically and politically. Primary care is encouraged to adopt innovative consultation methods. In addition to the traditional day to day GP provision. There is still a reluctance amongst clinicians to adopt video consulting due to lack of experience. This is an area of practice that requires confidence and exposure. Our course incorporates simulation within workshops, where delegates can have hands on experience within a safe environment to witness and experience the pressure of dealing with video consulting and its associated challenges. Specialist experts will be used to facilitate and debrief the participants based on their actions, and to deliver educational content within the short lectures.
