We asked the CHIA Examination Committee to recommend a recent publication/resource that is relevant to a CHIA. They recommended: Telehealth in remote Australia: a supplementary tool or an alternative model of care replacing face-to-face consultations?.

The article explores the perspectives of healthcare staff regarding the effective use of telehealth for patients living in remote areas of Australia, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Overall, the study highlighted the potential of telehealth to improve healthcare access in remote areas when complemented with face-to-face services. However, it also emphasized the need for addressing challenges related to digital infrastructure, language barriers, and workforce planning to ensure effective telehealth implementation in such settings.
