Elevate Your Remote Care Experience with Virtual Hug
Are you ready to transform your client's remote care experience?
Virtual Hug is here to guide you through a CPD certified e-learning course, designed to maximize client rapport and ensure rewarding video consultations. Whether you are a primary, secondary, or community healthcare professional, working in private or public organisations, this course is designed to help you be as professional and confident via video as you are in person.
The Shift to Online Care
The global outbreak of the coronavirus in 2020 fundamentally changed the way patient care is delivered. Many healthcare professionals now conduct online video consultations. However, transitioning can be anxiety-inducing for several reasons:
Lack of Training and Experience:
Video consultations were uncommon before Covid-19.
Tech Issues May Arise:
Connection problems, device faults, or software erros.
Technical Challenges for Patients:
Not all patients are tech-savvy, especially the elderly.
Remote consultations are the future of healthcare.
Consider how this transformation will benefit your practice:
Serve more clients, especially those who can't
visit your clinic but require care.
Handle tech issues with confidence and
find quick solutions.
Build better client relationships by mastering
rapport during video consultations.
End consultations with a smile, knowing you've honed your communication skills to provide top-notch remote care.
