How to approach it

How to approach it

  • Think of VC as an addition to telephone consultation – if video fails then you always have a phone

  • Learn basic functionality

  • Practice, practice, practice

  • Familiarise with features in casual use

  • Check that the system works well a few hours before consult

  • Get consent


Housekeeping

Housekeeping

  • Have a lamp behind your monitor to illuminate you

  • Door locked and sign outside

  • Background behind you should be simple and appropriate – consider framed degrees or plain background

  • Position the video image on the screen near the webcam

  • Avoid interruptions (if possible)


Internet connection poor or variable

Internet connection poor or variable?

  • Using the telephone rather than the video conference telephony (more stable)

  • Explain to the patient the limitations of the connection - ?blame someone else

  • Slow the visual examination down

  • Reduce frame rate in software or system

  • Be patient – consultation may take longer, but remember the saving in travel time


How to examine the patient

How to examine the patient

  • Think of how you do the consultation examination – imagine patient is in same room behind a glass partition – how would you “examine” them?

  • Considering PTZ cam? – adds complexity and cost

  • Have spare/second webcam on desk to show patient/GP/RN how to position it whilst online

  • Consider special devices later
