BUSHkids teleHealth research
BUSHkids has a research partnership with the Centre for Research Excellence in Telehealth at the University of Queensland to develop BUSHkids teleHealth services.
Starting in 2015, the research has helped BUSHkids understand how to best deliver telehealth to support our face-to-face services. See the story here: https://stories.uq.edu.au/bel/2019/bringing-telehealth-to-bushkids/index.html
