    What appears light years away now, myself and colleague Dr Chris Kirtley applied for sizable grant to support the use of telemedicine in Western Australia to track itinerant diabtiec clients as they moved across the big brown land. Using rural GP practices and the experts at a diabetic podiatry clinic in a city based hospital, the intention was to use the 'new computer cameras' (for that is how long ago it was) for monitoring diabetic ulcerations. Many rural indigenous clients go walkabout and some with horrendous ulcerations. Usually when they cross GP Division they are lost to the system and out intention was to use the new technology to link clinical experts.

    We lost the grant for two reasons, unofficially we were told 'telemedicine' as a new developing technology had to be driven by the medical profession and applications from other disciplines were not seriously considered at that time; and officially we were informed the podiatry experts (at the city hospital) refused to share their knowledge with others.:craig:

    More recently I worked with the Department of Health in WA in a home based care project (healthy@home), the staff were issued with a palm top computer as a means of telecommunication. The system had the potential to reply images and was for a very short time used to convey information to "experts" for on the spot help. Not sure whether the project was developed further but it did have great potential. At the FIP conference last year there was a podiatrist from Hong Kong who was also using telemedicine to good effect.

    One of the interesting challenges about clinical education on placement is being able to maintain the educational continuity in the multi-centre placement (which may now be in different countries). Telemedicine does offer a viable means of communication which could link satellite placements. Driven by a common core curricululm ( we are probably closer to that than most people think) then through the web, clinicians, supervisors, experts and students can all be linked. Construction of this type of curriculum would come at a cost but it is technically possible to have one major podiatry education centre per country capable of directing and controlling clinical education. Once standard podiatric text are available on the web ( somethig that is likely to happen sooner rather than later) then individual CPD could easily be arranged to support and maintain a multitude of activities. (anywhere in the globe). Brave new world and its just around the corner.

    What say you?

    As somebody who had to work in times when what you are talking about , was not in existence. We had to communicate with surgeries that was often vague. I think what is going on now is brilliant. A further note, i came across a retired hospital sister who had her own remedy for ulcers. The results were very good, she would let you purchase some of her remedy which was an ointment. But she would not share what was in it. But i would go there if i had a bad diabetic ulcer. I always kept in touch with the practice who my patient was under. They were impressed and tried to encourage her to share her prescription.

    No luck for anybody, she took it to her grave.

    This would be the best ever for this type of treatment. More so in the U.K. just now. To get a patient an appointment at a surgery is a long wait. A visit to A.E. is not much better. Yes I will say Amen to this.
