?Apply what you have learned about Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, and demonstrate the ability to develop a holistic plan of care, incorporating Telehealth, defining assessment and intervention of specific population incorporating unique attributes of populations for health promotion, wellness preservation and maintenance of function across the health-illness continuum.
Develop a case study and a plan of care, incorporating current mobile App technology:
Select a population. Define your population by gender, age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, spiritual need, and healthcare need .Apply concepts learned in course to identify healthcare needs needs specific to the population and access to care (Utilize your textbook Chapters 1-25, knowledge from Med-U, and identified Websites).
Describe how Telehealth could impact the delivery of care to this population.
Identify PICO specific to the population you chose in #1. (apply PICOT statement developed in MSN 563)
Define a plan of care.

Because virtual learning differs significantly from in-person learning, precautions must be taken to ensure a great learning experience.
Four of these steps were discussed in the webinar.
Remove any logistical obstacles.
According to Julian Genkins, MD, a third-year internal medicine resident at the University of California, San Francisco, and a former software developer for an EHR vendor, faculty and learners can often benefit from guidance in downloading the required software and setting up their homes for videoconferencing.
However, regardless of which videoconferencing platform you use, its essential not to assume that learners and instructors will comprehend it right away, thus some training may be required.
Because you dont have the same physical proximity in clinic, and you dont immediately know whos available to support you as a learner, he added, its also useful to have transparent preceptor expectations, including clear schedules for whos precepting.
Dr. Genkins also suggested establishing a back channel of communication, such as texting or private conversations on the videoconferencing platform, as well as a pre-briefing and debriefing process.
Concentrate on learning new talents.
Dr. Genkins pointed out that teaching learners how to make clinical assessments over video necessitates rethinking the principles of patient-physician relations.
What is distinctive about taking a history class, for example?
What are some pointers for performing a physical examination?
How do you politely interrupt a patient?
Because panel management will vary, how should high-risk patients be identified and encouraged to try video visits?

How do we keep the telehealth momentum going when the COVID-19 issue is over?
I believe its important to look of some of this as just experiential learning, he added, noting that students are often unaware of what they dont understand.
And you might not have telemedicine-experienced staff, so they might not be able to capture those unknown unknowns.
Make the most of the technology available to you.
According to Benjamin Li, MD, a third-year radiation oncology resident at the University of California, San Francisco, and founder of Rayos Contra Cancer, which focuses on training radiation oncology clinicians via telehealth in low-resource settings, telemedicine provides opportunities to maximize learning.
We have real-time back channels for learning, so if youre a medical student and the faculty is talking about something you dont understand, you can look up the anatomy for what hes talking about on your own screen, or look up an UpToDate article, he explained.
Furthermore, videotelephony has made educational gatherings more accessible than they have ever been.
Distance isnt an issue, Dr. Li added, noting that the fees of attending conferences from afar are frequently quite inexpensive.
Take advantage of the opportunity.
Unlocking the potential of this platform requires a shift in mentality, Dr. Li added.
In the telemedicine clinical experience, dont just repeat the in-person conversations.
He mentioned that the adoption of EHRs is a good point of reference.
When EHRs are just considered as electronic versions of paper charts, their full potential is never fulfilled.
He said, Lets not make the same error with telehealth.
We should regard this as an addition to the in-person encounter rather than a replacement.
