Teaching From Afar: Development of a Telemedicine Curriculum for Healthcare Workers in Global Settings.
2021; 13 (12): e20123
The Stanford Department of Emergency Medicine joined forces with Digital Medic to create educational materials to teach global healthcare providers how to evaluate patients via telemedicine in the setting of COVID-19. Users then asked for additional education on best practices surrounding the use of telemedicine as a communication medium. Here, we describe our experience in the creation of this additional module and provide some basic feedback received from end-users. We scripted, filmed, and edited a video module for this application over the course of 14 weeks. It was subsequently deployed as part of the larger COVID-19 educational program. To date, the course has had over 28,000 participants. Each was asked to take a pre- and post-test to assess the knowledge of telemedicine best practices before and after the video module; 19,412 elected to take the pre-test and 19,364 took the post-test with overall scores of 84% and 95%, respectively. Anecdotal feedback has been positive. Telemedicine systems have proliferated rapidly around the world, but best practices for physician-to-patient interactions have not been similarly disseminated. We conclude that video modules can be used to fill this educational need quickly and economically.
