Course description

Virtual Care with Presence

Internet Enduring Material sponsored by Stanford University School of Medicine.

Healthcare systems are rapidly scaling up telemedicine to reduce risk of infection and protect clinicians and patients in light of the pandemic. In the outpatient setting, many visits are taking place by video, introducing a digital barrier to the human connection that is central to patient care. This training video covers strategies to foster humanism and meaningful connection during virtual visits, as guided by the Presence 5 model.
