Where: Online webinar

Interactive CET points: 1

The measures introduced as part of the COVID-19 response have resulted in many more practitioners offering remote consultations, enabling them to continue providing essential and urgent care, and reducing the need for face-to-face consultations.

This webinar is intended to help practitioners provide remote care for patients in a safe, effective way, both as part of the care they provide in their everyday practice, and during exceptional circumstances, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic.
