Check out this recently published op-ed written by Dr. Tromp, Kathleen Walsh and Alexandra Dozzi on the SRPC Choosing Wisely Canada list https://www.thestar.com/opinion/contributors/2020/09/28/virtual-healthcare-can-ease-pain-of-being-hospitalized-far-from-home.html

The recommendations are wise ones and applicable anywhere. In my urban based practice there are benfits even for women living in the city having virtual visits. But I think I miss some important non-verbal communication. Would the speakers please comment on how to attenuate that loss.

I would like to see a national licence for pan northern practice

If you could speak to how you overcome barriers to attend virtual appts for patients, especially rural/remote (i.e. no Wifi/bandwidth, no access to technology, not enough minutes on their monthly phone plan, etc)?
Dr Sarita Verma

I liked 'Practising Wisely' a CPD opportunity that takes recommendations from Choosing Wisely and models the implementation strategies to integrate evidence into practice—is it still in play?
Karen Born
58:00
Thanks for your comment about Practising Wisely … it is still up and running. To date there are 30 trained and 100 workshops delivered to 1,657 participants (predominantly family physicians) in eight provinces between 2015 and 2020.

Consider CanTalk for translation. Patients may be uncomfortable disclosing personal information to a friend or community member who translates

Do you believe that virtual medicine will be one of the priority areas for medicine in the near future and onwards? Technology is improving but infrastructure to rural and remote communities is behind. Do you think virtual care should be a priority with every health hub in rural/remote communities?
Sarah Cook
59:32
Yes we use CanTalk often!
Emilie Tremblay St-Aubin

Can you speak to virtual critical care as I know this is fairly new at HSN and is something I have used as an RN in Kapuskasing that I found was very beneficial when access to transportation to a bigger facility was not possible due to weather restrictions. Thank you!

Again more tools that CW has created have helped me so much like Choosing Wisely - The Cold Standard toolkit - helps determine which patients should be assessed in person when they have respiratory symptoms during the pandemic: https://choosingwiselycanada.org/perspective/the-cold-standard/

have you even done choosing wisely from a nursing perspective?
Karen Born
01:07:13
@karen Thomas - yes Choosing Wisely Canada works closely with a number of national societies. https://choosingwiselycanada.org/nursing/

Do you believe that virtual medicine will be one of the priority areas for medicine in the near future or onwards? Technology is importing but infrastructure to rural and remote communities is behind; do you think virtual care should be prioritized within rural/remote health hubs?

Electronic ordering may be an opportunity where costs can be associated so that it encourages thinking around cost issues.
Sharon Reece
01:12:02
An incredibly revealing question to ask a patient from a rural/remote community: "What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to see me today?"
George Carson
01:12:33
An exellent suggestion is to stop asking "What is the matter with you?" and instead "What matters to you." That would include travel and having loved ones close by.
