Telemedicine consultations Terms

General Information about Telemedicine Consultations: 

  • I understand that my Nutritionist wishes me to engage in a telemedicine consultation.
  • My Nutritionist has explained to me how the video conferencing technology will not be the same as a face-to-face consultation since I will not be in the same room as my Nutritionist.
  • I understand there are potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorised access and technical difficulties. 
  • I understand that my Nutritionist or I can discontinue the telemedicine

consultation if it is felt that the video conferencing connections are not adequate for the situation.

  • I have had the alternatives to a telemedicine consultation explained to me, and I am choosing to participate in a telemedicine consultation. 
  • I understand that some parts of the consultation involving physical examinations (i.e. body weight) may be conducted at my location at the direction of the consulting health care provider.
