Course description

Telehealth is the delivery of health care related services and information via telecommunication technologies. It supports independent living by providing health care services from a distance (e-health). There is an increasing need to lay the foundations for the rapid and widespread adoption of telecare and telehealth solutions across the UK. As a result, this module aims to not only provide an increased awareness of telecare and telehealth but also stimulate behavior changes across a wide range of target audiences. On completion of this course learners will:
