ISPO Online Symposium on Telehealth

ISPO has the pleasure to announce its first “Symposium on Telehealth”. Organised by the ISPO Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee, the symposium will be held online on 16 October 2020, from 12 (noon) to 3 PM UCT.

Freely accessible to the entire ISPO community, the symposium will aim to demonstrate how communication technology is being used in various sectors of rehabilitation services. In particular, the purpose is to:

• Introduce participants to telehealth,
• Demonstrate/discuss the importance of telehealth in light of the current pandemic,
• Provide examples/model of telehealth that have been put into practical use.

Representing the multidisciplinary and international membership of ISPO, the symposium presenters will talk about topics such as the telehealth landscape, risk analysis of telehealth versus face-to-face interventions, telehealth strategies for remote regions, and telehealth for outcomes and patient education. Sufficient time is foreseen to answer questions from the audience.

The full programme and list of speakers will be made available shortly, and registration is planned to be open between mid-September and mid-October. The recording of the event will be made available to ISPO members in good standing.

You can sign up for the online online symposium by completing this short registration form.
