Rural doctors prepare to JAMIT
The Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) is running an inaugural Just a Minute Instant Tutorial (JAMIT) competition on telehealth and eHealth topics for the Rural Medicine Australia 2013 conference.
The conference, organised in conjunction with the Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA), is being held in Cairns from October 31 to November 2.
The JAMIT competition involves the creation of 60-second videos demonstrating a tip for rural doctors to help better provide telehealth or eHealth-related services.
The competition is part of a workshop on eHealth and social media being held on Friday, November 1 at the conference, organised by ACRRM's social media expert group (SMEG).
SMEG members including Marion Davies, Gerry Considine, Ewen McPhee, Dennis Pashen and Melanie Clothier will discuss social media, free open access medical education (FOAMed), telehealth and shared electronic health records and promise that the workshop will be a PowerPoint free zone.
SMEG members Tim Leeuwenburg and Minh Le Cong have uploaded some demonstration JAMIT videos to ACRRM's JAMIT YouTube channel, explaining rapid sequence intubation and how to do an adrenaline infusion.
Dr Considine will perform his chart-topping JAMIT The Musical before the competition's judging takes place. A People's Choice award – with the prize of an Alere INRatio2 PT/INR monitoring system – will be presented to the video with the highest number of votes, and the SMEG will present an experts' award for the video deemed the most relevant, clinically valid and innovative.
The afternoon session will involve presentations and panel discussion on Australian eHealth reform, involving representatives from NEHTA and the Department of Health and Ageing.
