ACRRM Tele-Derm: a diagnosis from a dermatologist in 48 hours
Distant end practitioner
Access to Tele-Derm is FREE for ACRRM members, RRMEO subscribers and GPs who work in rural Australia
Tele-Derm is an online resource designed primarily for rural doctors interested in obtaining practical advice on the diagnosis and management of skin disease in general practice.
Submit a digital photo of affected skin and a history (and diagnosis, if you’ve made one). An experienced dermatologist examines the evidence, and reports back to you - usually within two days - with diagnosis and/or treatment options.
GPs are also able to access online dermatological case studies, education opportunities, recommended links, and discussion forums. Dr Jim Muir moderates these discussions and answers questions arising in the forums.
Tele-Derm also allows rural doctors anywhere in Australia to electronically submit specific de-identified cases for assessment.
