Course Availability: Open

This course will focus on the adaptation of assessment and communication skills for use in a telepractice environment. An emphasis will be placed on awareness of one’s self, in order to develop the listening, verbal communication, and problem-solving skills required for accurately interpreting the needs of clients from diverse backgrounds at a distance. The need to collaborate with the health care team and to apply the appropriate guidelines, legislation and nursing standards of practice will be emphasized. Opportunities to practice these skills will occur in a variety of simulated nursing telepractice situations and in the Nursing Telepractice Theory and Laboratory course (TELE 408). Assessment using alternative forms of emerging telehealth technology will also be explored. Winter 2001 – Web delivery Hours: 45
