The Practice Advisory Panel (Practice AP; part of the Advisory Panel Pilot Program) was charged by the AVMA Board of Directors in September 2015 to provide guidance to the association regarding telemedicine. The Practice AP is moving forward with developing a white paper on the topic, and is seeking members who are willing to serve on a telemedicine working group. Although we anticipate that the scope of information gathering will eventually extend beyond veterinarians, the Practice AP has chosen to focus first on the veterinary profession’s perspectives, needs and concerns regarding telemedicine and its role in the delivery of veterinary services. In particular, the Practice AP seeks members with clinical or regulatory experience with telemedicine.
About the working group:
- The size of the working group has not yet been determined; members will be selected based on their experience and ability to contribute to constructive conversations.
- The working group will be virtual; no travel or in-person attendance is required. Discussions will be conducted electronically and via conference calls.
Applications are due January 22, 2016.
