A Framework for Telemedicine Training and e-Health: Competency-based Education, Evaluation, and Impl

A Framework for Training Providers of Telemedicine and e-Health: Competency-based Education, Evaluation, and Implications

Standards and guidelines are excellent ways to provide telemedicine patients with great care
but they are only one part of the “best practices” equation. One way of ensuring great care is to provide basic skill targets for tele providersin medicine and other professions. We provide a framework of telemedicine competencies stratified into beginner, proficient, and expert levels - for primary care and specialty services.

Learning Objectives

• Provide an overview of why we need telemedicine competencies and frameworks (e.g., ACGME, CanMEDs, others) for organizing them.

• Review a framework of telemedicine competencies stratified into beginner, proficient, and expert levels for all areas of medicine, including some specialty-based prototype competencies, based on sub-groups.

• Explore telemedicine competencies and implications for international organizations and institutions, related to changes in policy, faculty development, infrastructure (e.g., e-platform), and funding.
