These videos were created to educate health care providers and students on best practices when engaging in telepractice. The videos highlight the use of telepresence robot, but all of the best practice tips can be applied to telehealth universally regardless of the technology used. The series follows a patient from an initial psychiatric consult with a primary care provider to the visit via telepractice with a psychiatric provider. Engaging in telepractice involves the use of many different skills. These videos cover how to evaluate a patient for a telepractice referral, introduce the patient to telepractice, make a warm handoff to the specialist via telepractice, build rapport using tele-etiquette, and conduct the telepsych visit. The videos are broken down into separate segments and can be used as needed for various educational venues.

Creation of these videos is supported by the Advanced Nursing Education and Workforce Initiative, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $2.8 million dollars with percentage financed with nongovernmental sources.
