Telehealth Webinar: Equity and Improving Access
DPA Chief Executive Prudence Walker will join a panel discussing the use of telehealth tomorrow evening.
Covid-19 has triggered rapid changes in the delivery of health services and highlighted the need to address equity by improving access.
The use of telehealth solutions can assist providers in providing continuity of care in a safe, secure and sustainable way.

Topics on improving access will include:
• What are the barriers?
• How can we ensure telehealth doesn’t exacerbate health inequities?
• How do we maintain tikanga Maori practices when using telehealth?
• What is the telehealth experience?
