Telehealth Awareness Week 2019

As a result of discussion and enthusiasm expressed during the final panel session of SFT 2018, the ATHS committed to supporting a national ‘Telehealth Awareness Week’ in 2019.

This builds on the experience and successes of the Western Australia campaigns in 2017 and 2018.

Interested?

The ATHS will provide some general resources, support and guidance via this webpage and TWIT updates.

We have a small group including one or more members from each State or Territory who are meeting monthly and will pull together these resources.

Telehealth Awareness Week activities need to be run locally, and that’s where you come in to it.  So if you’re keen to run a local campaign, look at the resources and information below, keep an eye on the monthly TWIT newsletter and this page, and contact your local ATHS representative (see below for names).

Key latest updates

May is a proposed awareness and engagement campaign for clinicians – ahead of the national media campaign in October

October is the agreed month for Telehealth Awareness Week.  Individual jurisdictions can select their own week to suit.
