REAP to host informal rounds using WebEx


Dr. John Pawlovich, Director of the Rural Education Action Plan (REAP) and Dr. Neil Kitson of UBC Dermatology are inviting rural physicians to participate in an informal videoconference round session on Friday, March 6, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. The subject for this round will be the review and management of rashes in the rural ambulatory care setting.

REAP is conducting a test using the WebEx platform to gauge whether the tool could be useful for continuing medical education applications. If the tool proves easy to use for event organizers, presenters, and attendees, it could become a useful complement to existing rural educational tools. REAP is one of a few health organizations currently evaluating WebEx’s capability for use in medical education.

The videoconference will be hosted via WebEx and may be accessed at the nearest videoconference centre. Alternatively, participants may also connect to this session via individual desktop/laptop computers, tablets, or smart phones.

“If you are connecting to the session via a Mac or PC desktop or laptop, you won’t have to download any special software to join the videoconference,” says Pawlovich. “However, if you are planning to connect via a mobile device, such as a smartphone, a Blackberry, an iPad, or an Android or Windows tablet, you will need to download the WebEx app before the meeting.”

Please note that this round will not be accredited.
