Formatted Abstract/Summary Nurses represent the largest group of healthcare professionals; and their role in healthcare is diverse. The lack of nurses in the workforce and the increasing demand of care continues to challenge health systems across the globe. Telehealth has been identified as a potential alternative method for delivering health services. Evidence is emerging that the use of telehealth by nurses results in efficiency gains and cost effective health care delivery. Regardless of growing evidence, the use of telehealth in nursing practice is still very limited. The lack of systematic education programs in telehealth and the lack of resilience in regards to organisational change remain significant barriers for the uptake of telehealth for nurses.
