This interactive virtual workshop aims to increase awareness and promote innovative models of telehealth where technology is used to improve access to integrated care and services. Attendees will hear about the lessons learned in developing and implementing these models and will hear recommendations and suggestions on how to bring these learnings into their practices. Discussions will have a focus on sustainability both during and after the public health emergency. Attendees will have adequate time for questions and to provide feedback to the presenters including District representatives.
Participants are asked to complete a short pre -session survey to collect information on current telehealth practices. The survey should take less than 5 minutes. Results will be shared as part of the workshop.
