Abstract

Face-to-face interactions, via teleconferencing link, are investigated for multidisciplinary medical team (MDT) meetings. Comparison is made between colocated MDT meetings and those held in teleconference. Attitudes towards video changed positively, over a period of 8 months, following participants' experience of teleconferencing. Analysis of display screen use reveals 60% of case discussion time was time spent in face-to-face view with remote sites, contrary to expressed views of its relative unimportance. The value of the video link in MDT meetings, held in teleconference, is found to have higher than expected value.
