Telehealth can be a useful means of caring for managing diabetes and can reduce the need for travel for some patients and improve access to care particularly for rural and remote patients and those in aged care facilities and Aboriginal medical services. Practical aspects of telehealth using video conferencing will be covered including selection of patients, types of technologies, room setup, communication skills and use of devices. Opportunities for international telehealth to developing countries will be discussed.
