The COVID-19 outbreak has required the majority of people to adapt to working in different ways, and often remotely, with health being no exception.

To help staff and patients leverage the benefits of technology, the Western Sydney Local Health District Health Literacy Hub and the University of Sydney are hosting a one-hour webinar on 9 June to discuss the tools and approaches that will enable clinicians to effectively and confidently communicate through digital technology.

Two healthcare professionals experienced in telehealth will provide tips and techniques to support quality communication in a new era with high demand for virtual clinical consultation.

Participants will have the opportunity to contribute and ask questions via the live webinar. 

WSLHD board member Professor Don Nutbeam has encouraged staff to take part and hear about the benefits, challenges and strategies of communicating through telehealth.

“Join us in this free webinar and find out to improve the quality and safety of your telephone and video consultations by using health literacy principles to guide effective communication.” Prof Nutbeam said.
