NP Insider webinar: Is virtual care the new normal?

As part of the monthly NP Insider webinars, NPs across Ontario joined RNAO’s Nurse Practitioner Interest Group in October for a webinar entitled Virtual Care - the New Normal?  to discuss virtual care, including the current virtual care landscape and the associated benefits and challenges for NPs. 

Presenters  Sophia Naser, NP and Clinical Lead of Cleveland Clinic Canada’s Digital Health Program and Kari Gali, DNP, APRN and Quality Information Officer in Distance Health at Cleveland Clinic discussed barriers and facilitators to providing virtual care in Canada, examined  clinical elements in a quality virtual care program and discussed how advances in technology have expanded capabilities in patient care. 

Participants were also able to hear a quick update from NPIG and the NP policy initiatives RNAO is working on including its annual NP Knowledge Exchange Symposium, occurring virtually this year on Nov. 23.
