Abstract

As telehealth systems are increasingly being adopted by healthcare providers, a growing number of medical practitioners need to learn to use such systems. Despite this, however, most medical schools do not currently include telehealth-related content in their curriculum. In this paper we demonstrate, through examples from our own experience, how the Problem Based Learning method can be used to incorporate telehealth systems in medical science education. We also present a survey of medical students and faculty, conducted at a university in Brazil, to gain the participants' opinions on the nu-case mobile telehealth system. The results of the survey show that nu-case provides support for a range of tasks that a telehealth system needs to cater for in the context of our application area.
