The standards promote effective clinical and administrative management of the increasingly complex telehealth nursing roles and responsibilities. Sixteen standards are included along with competencies for telehealth registered nurses, nurse executives, administrators, and managers. Use the publication as a tool to advance professional nursing practice, patient health, and the performance outcomes of telehealth institutions. This resource is ideal for writing policies, procedures, job descriptions; orienting staff; planning for Joint Commission surveys; and increasing the quality and safety of patient care.
