Nwosu AC. Telehealth requires improved evidence to achieve its full potential in palliative care. Palliative Medicine. 2023;37(7):896-897. doi:10.1177/02692163231182461
Palliative care telehealth (describing the use of technology for healthcare access) and telemedicine (describing use of technology for care delivery) is increasingly being used in the delivery of palliative care. Palliative care telehealth is increasing, due to advancements in technological hardware, software and infrastructure (e.g., upgrades to battery technology, sensors, portable computing and wireless internet coverage); however, evidence of its efficacy and effectiveness is limited.
