“Telehealth 101: What Libraries Need to Know” Course Offered

Jan 17, 2024

In response to the recent surge of libraries beginning to offer telehealth services to address digital access inequities, The Network of the National Library of Medicine is offering a free course, “Telehealth 101: What Libraries Need to Know”. The class will introduce what telehealth is, why it’s important, and how it can give people greater access to quality healthcare. Privacy and ethical concerns will be addressed, as well as the technology and infrastructure requirements needed to successfully launch a telehealth program in your own library. The course will also explore examples of how libraries have provided their patrons with access to telehealth services. Course dates will be February 5-March 1 and will consist of three one-hour modules. Continuing education credit will be available from the Medical Library Association toward the Consumer Health Information Specialization from the Medical Library Association.
