Video-communication between patients living at home and nurses in community based care

What is it about?

We tested how patients and nurses experienced replacing home visits by video visits. Did it add to the patients' feeling of safety?

Why is it important?

ICT is part of future care, but it must be used carefully, and tailored to the individual patient's needs

Perspectives
