And after another short hiatus, we’re back! Whilst the coronavirus crisis may have kept us separated momentarily, we’ve come together virtually via Zoom to record Episode 12!
For this episode, we’re talking about two important topics, wellbeing in the face of adversity, and telehealth consultations.
Jane and Jason discuss both the mental and physical aspects of health during this unusual time, stressing the importance of keeping both socially and physically active at home during this unusual time – of course whilst maintaining physical distancing. We then unpack what telehealth consultations are, and what you can expect if you are considering an online consultation with your GP, physio or other health professional. And as we find out, with the right structures in place from your clinician, telehealth consultations can be as valuable as physical consultations.
As this has been recorded from three separate locations using Zoom, rather than our traditional podcast studio, you may notice different audio quality, and the occasional internet delay (read: Jason’s internet), so please bear with us!
We have also published the video recording of our podcast on our Facebook page, so make sure to check that out (below) if you prefer to watch as well as listen!
