Van Gurp J, Dees M. Teleconsultatie: optimalisering van palliatieve thuiszorg? Huisarts Wet 2017;60(11):573-6.

Moderne communicatietechnologieën, zoals e-mail, internet en de mobiele telefoon, hebben de afgelopen drie decennia snel hun intrede in de huisartsenpraktijk gedaan. Allemaal vragen ze om nieuwe communicatievormen en -normen. Zo ook een van de meest recente toepassingen: videoconsultatie met patiënten. Deze beschouwing beschrijft de ervaringen met videoconsultaties in een context waarin technologie alom gevreesd wordt om zijn onpersoonlijke karakter: bij palliatieve zorg thuis. We laten zien hoe, in deze context, videoconsultatie zorg- en werkrelaties beïnvloedt.
