Workshop 1: Introduction to biostatistics for telehealth evaluation

This program is based on QLD time. 

Keshia De Guzman
Centre for Online Health, The University of Queensland

Centaine Snoswell
The University of Queensland

The investigation, implementation, and evaluation of telehealth services requires tailored research that involves the application of biostatistical methods. This workshop will provide practical information that covers an introduction to biostatistics and discusses how quantitative methods may be used to evaluate telehealth services. Using examples from research, the presenters will discuss methods for recognising, summarising, and analysing telehealth related data. Telehealth service implementation has increased dramatically since the Coronavirus pandemic, which calls for evidence-based evaluations to improve the future delivery of these services. To do this, rigorous and appropriate approaches to telehealth research are required. An understanding of the principles of biostatistics is fundamental for health research and is an important aspect of conducting telehealth evaluations.

Workshop 3: Providing a Telehealth service - how to make it work well

Michael Williams
Queensland Paediatric Telehealth Service

An interactive workshop will be provided based on the experience of a paediatrician who has been involved in telehealth consultations in rural and regional queensland for more than 20 years, in both the hospital and private practice settings.

The discussion will be focused on what provides best patient/client care, with a positive experience for both clinician and the others involved in the consultation. It will look at the opportunities for those interested in providing telehealth services, with flexibility and efficiency. We will look at how it may be best set up and sustained.

The workshop will be an opportunity to share experiences in providing clinical care via telehealth.
