BACKGROUND The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions and multimorbidity poses great challenges to healthcare systems. Therefore, patients’ engagement in self-managing their illness becomes
Informing telehealth service delivery for cardiovascular disease management: exploring the perceptions of rural health professionals.
TLDR
The use and development of telehealth in rural communities requires a collaborative approach that considers the views of rural stakeholders in their specific contexts, and suggests telehealth services may be enhanced by collaborative approaches that engage multiple stakeholder groups.
