This is the first in the series of ASMEBITESIZE events. It takes the form of an audio podcast exploring some of the key challenges and opportunities of teaching medical students about video and audio consulting in the current Covid crisis and beyond. The short podcast is now available via the link below in which ASME Chair Professor Sandra Nicholson interviews Dr Graham Easton, GP and Professor of Communication Skills at Queen Mary University of London...
Until a few months ago, video consulting seemed like the future of doctor-patient interactions. Now it’s very much the present, and it’s here to stay. Doctors and health professionals of the future need to learn about video consulting, something potentially well-suited to our current online existence. But what do they need to know? How can we help them learn the skills? What are the tips and pitfalls for medical educators?
On Friday 5th June at 4pm the podcast will be followed up with a virtual discussion via webinar where ASME members can share ideas and best practice. If you would like to take part, register below* for the webinar and log any questions you may have by emailing: [email protected]
