Patients give a thumbs-up to videoconferencing for COPD, diabetes education
Participants in a Norwegian study on patient education for COPD and diabetes through videoconferencing gave the program high marks, according to a study in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.
The number of participants was small--five in each group--for the six-week trials. The content was based on multidisciplinary outpatient programs offered at the University Hospital of North Norway, but delivered through each patient's home television, which was connected to a computer and a remote.
A staff member met patients in their homes at the beginning to help them set up the equipment and to explain the program.
