Abstract

The study focused on real-time video consultations (tele-consultations) as experienced by Danish hospital-based, respiratory nurses (tele-nurses) and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, discharged after hospitalization with acute exacerbation (tele-patients).Tele-patients and tele-nurses consider tele-consultations as distinct, but qualified care, enabling close relationships between patient and nurse. The nurses' performance and their professional identity changed. The patients become active, participants in their treatment and care.
