Telemedicine in Palliative Care: Digital Communication in a Relationship-Based Speciality - Does It Make Sense? Abstract. Telemedicine in palliative care is established especially in countries with large geographical distances. Digital forms of communication (virtual consultations) are most frequently used and well-accepted by patients and caregivers. The main benefit lies in the reduction of the access barrier in the outpatient setting. Advantages are stress reduction for patients (travel, accessibility) and reduction in the care burden for relatives. Additional benefits compared to the physical visit for symptom-control, quality of life and costs are unclear. Risks are influenced by the lack of physical interaction and data security. To what extent telepalliative care makes sense in a high-density health system is difficult to predict. It is therefore important to use these new tools in a carefully adapted and scientifically verified way.
