Telemedicine is a new technology that is set to expand (Rayman 1992, Lindberg 1995, Llewellyn 1995, Brismar 1995), and like any new technology, the people who use it will need considerable training (Flannery et al 1995, Phillips et al 1995, Lindberg and Humphreys 1995, Beard et al 1993, Voges 1996). Generalists and specialists, doctors and nurses all need to learn how to use it and, more importantly, understand how it functions.
