Diabetes on the Net is intended for healthcare professionals
The use of remote consultations to provide support for individuals unable to attend a clinic is becoming more significant. As healthcare professionals you are now seeing more patients than ever before, and your time must be allocated wisely. People with diabetes need a significant amount of support to maintain good health; remote consultations can help you provide good quality care and support to more patients, making better use of your time.
This webinar will examine the advances being made in remote consultations and provide you with the information and skills you need to make your own remote practice a success. The webinar will answer a lot of the pertinent questions: Which patients will be suitable? What is the best way to contact patients? How can we make it work for the patient? And how do we ensure patients receive the support they really need?
