A seminar hosted by the Royal Society of Medicine under its Medical Innovations Programme.

In October 2013, Leicester Medical School (LMS) became the first in the UK to teach online consultations. All first year medical students in 2013-14 are currently being trained how to hold consultations online with virtual patients.

The biggest barrier to doctors conducting online consultations is, arguably, that no one taught them how to do so. In addition some doctors voice concerns about patient safety and demands on time.

Award winning social enterprise ‘Patients Know Best’ is creating a new curriculum for online consultations. They plan to make the curriculum available to other medical schools through an open access licence.

Speakers at the briefing include Dr Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, CEO and founder of Patients Know Best; Dr Ronald Hsu, Teaching Fellow, LMS; Dr Jane Bethea, Lecturer in Public Health, LMS; and Ms Mary Hall, Specialist Registrar in Public Health, LMS.

This is an invitation-only event. If you have a professional interest in attending this briefing please email rth4@leicester.ac.uk,
