Snapshot of the use of Teleconsultations

Supported by the Unité de soutien SSA Québec, Mylaine Breton, a researcher at the Université de Sherbrooke, and her team have drawn up a portrait of the level of implementation of teleconsultations in the COVID-19 context and their advantages and disadvantages compared to in-person medical visits. Read the results of an environmental scan on the use of teleconsultations in the front line and its conclusions.

Read about the use of teleconsultations in the context of COVID-19 in 48 of the 50 GMF-Us in Québec as well as a presentation explaining how to opt for teleconsultation in GMF-Us.

These documents are useful for all decision-makers who want to frame the deployment of this digital practice in Québec.
