The purpose of the Guidelines for interprofessional collaboration between general practitioners and other medical specialists providing video consultations is to facilitate effective collaboration between general practitioners (GPs) and other medical specialists at a distant location offering video consultations.
The guidelines relate primarily to real-time video consultations, where a patient and their usual GP (or another support clinician) are at the patient-end of the consultation and another medical specialist is at a distant location.
It is envisaged the guidelines will assist GPs and other medical specialists to provide safe, high quality healthcare in this particular telehealth setting.1 In addition, the guidelines may be useful for other telehealth scenarios requiring effective interprofessional collaboration between any medical specialists or for telehealth scenarios such as ‘store and forward’ (asynchronous) as opposed to ‘real-time’ (synchronous) video consultations. The guidelines provide a community reference for patients seeking to take advantage of better access to primary healthcare via a video consultation.
