Telemedicine and the future patient

In this project we want to map and explore the policy/practice networks that shape, and are in turn shaped by, the emergence of telemedicine - and by teledermatology as a specific case study - as an arena of socio-technical development. We will build on our existing work about its development and evaluation, to explore the ways that a wide variety of actors are working to define a new field of NHS provision, and a new mode of interaction between patients and professionals. In doing so we want to ask three key questions.
