Telehealth community gears up for SFT-14
A draft program for November's Successes and Failures in Telehealth (SFT-14) conference has been released, featuring keynote speakers Gordon Peterkin, former director of the Scottish Telehealth Centre, and Peter Soyer of the University of Queensland's Dermatology Research Centre, who will discuss the future of teledermatology.
The draft program for the two-day event also features some of the best-known researchers and practitioners in Australian telehealth, including the Australian e-Health Research Centre's Yogi Kanagasingam; the Centre for Online Health's Dominique Bird, Anthony Smith and Len Gray; the University of Adelaide's Tory Wade; and Flinders University's Alan Taylor and Colin Carati.
One complete session will be dedicated to a workshop for the Centre for Research Excellence in Telehealth, which was officially launched in July to focus on translating research findings into clinical practice.
One topic of interest as changes are made to the roll-out of the National Broadband Network is a presentation by UQ's Liam Caffery on the quality of video consultations performed using 4G mobile.
New Zealand will be represented by Stephen Jennison of the Northland District Health Board, who will discuss rural outpatient heart failure management.
A roundtable session will also be held on national telehealth strategies, with panellists including invited representatives from various state and territory health departments.
Organised by the Centre for Online Health in association with the Australasian Telehealth Society, SFT-14 will be held from November 17 to 18 at the Hilton in Adelaide.
