Karen Tulk, Western Regional Health Authority – In a review of paramedicine reports for the Western Newfoundland region, it was identified that a significant portion of the transfers for long-term care centre residents were related to urgent or emergent care. A position paper was developed to explore the financial and emotional burden, as well as the impact on the quality of care and quality of life associated with these transfers and consequent wait times for long-term care residents requiring emergency services. This Webinar Wednesday presentation provides a summary of the paper, including information gathered through a literature review and networking with colleagues in the areas of telehealth, emergency services and long-term care. The presentation also includes a historical overview, a summary of the benefits and uses of telehealth for long-term and emergency care, as well a summary of identified challenges and facilitators.
