Access to a physician via telemedicine can empower skilled nursing facility nurses to treat more residents in place, avoiding a stressful return to the emergency department. But connecting with a physician on video can be uncomfortable, and most nurses have never received telemedicine training. What conditions warrant a telemedicine visit? What is the best way to prepare for a telemedicine assessment? What types of conditions can be treated with the support of a telemedicine physician? And, most importantly, how can you train your frontline nurses to embrace telemedicine to deliver better care for residents when a doctor is not in the building? Get your questions answered and find out how you can support frontline nurses to partner with remote physicians to deliver optimal care.


  • Identify the common barriers that prevent nurses from using telemedicine
  • Understand what types of conditions warrant a telemedicine intervention
  • Know best practices for using the camera, audio, and body language to communicate effectively
  • Train your nurses how to properly conduct an assessment with a telemedicine physician
  • Use a frontline nurse “champion” to help build adoption for your program
  • Empower your nurses to work at the top of their license with physician support
