The ideal videoconferencing environment would produce the minimum feeling of artificiality for its users. We assessed nurse and patient perceptions of artificiality by varying the technical and operational procedures for telemedicine in a minor injuries unit. Twenty-five patients and eight emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs) participated in simulated teleconsultations under a variety of different conditions and completed a Likert-scale survey. There was a close correlation between the ENPs' ratings and the patients' ratings for the various factors (r > 0.99). In relation to technical factors, a flicker-free television screen and the user being seated close to the screen were preferred. Similarly, in relation to operational procedures, an initial explanation of telemedicine, introductions and adequate preparation were also preferred. The study suggests that careful attention to technical specifications and operational procedures can reduce the perceived artificiality of teleconsultations.

We obtained follow-up information about the new patients seen at a minor accident and treatment service (MATS) staffed by emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs). A previous study, of 150 teleconsultations in a six-month period starting in April 1996, was used for comparison. In the present series, 150 teleconsultations occurring in a four-month period starting in April 1999 were studied; the patients constituted 5.6% of the 2658 new attenders or 3.8% of the 3936 total attenders. In comparison with the study three years before, falling teleconsultation rates were partly offset by increasing numbers of attenders and an extension of the ENPs' roles and skills. Teleconsultation rates rose when the number of consultant-run clinics was curtailed and ENP-run clinics replaced some of them. Eligibility to request and report more radiographs reduced the need for teleconsultations, and subsequently teleconsultations for help with interpretation of radiographs fell as the ENPs became more experienced. Specialty residents trusted ENP judgement and accepted telephoned direct admission of cases to their wards. Fewer teleconsultations were required for soft-tissue injuries. Telemedicine is an excellent educational tool.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between changing morbidity patterns, the use of hospital services by HIV-infected patients and the uptake of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in England. DESIGN: Prospective serial cross-sectional analyses based on data collected through the National Prospective Monitoring System (NPMS), a multi-centre prospective monitoring system. SETTING: HIV-infected patients seen in 10 clinics, five London and five non-London, during the three semesters, 1 January 1996 to 30 June 1997. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The mean use of hospital services per patient-year, mean new HIV-related opportunistic illnesses per 1000 patient-years and percentage uptake of ART. RESULTS: The use of inpatient services changed particularly among AIDS patients. The mean number of inpatient days for AIDS patients decreased from 19.7 [95% confidence interval (CI) 13.7-25.7] in 1996 to 11.2 (95% CI 6.1-15.6) per patient-year in 1997. Concurrently the number of new AIDS-defining events decreased significantly from 567 (95% CI 529-607) to 203 (95% CI 183-225) per 1000 patient-years. The overall uptake of ART increased significantly from 33% (95% CI 31-35%) to 50% (95% CI 48-52%), and a switch from mono or dual to triple therapy or quadruple or more therapy was observed. However, by mid-1997 only 29% (95% CI 26-32%) of asymptomatic patients and 51% (95% CI 49-54%) of patients with symptomatic non-AIDS were on ART, compared with 69% (95% CI 66-71%) of AIDS patients. CONCLUSION: The observed reduction in new AIDS-defining events has led to a reduction in the need for inpatient hospital care and has been associated with an increased uptake of ART, including a switch to triple therapy. All of these factors are likely to have contributed to the observed reduction in mortality among English AIDS patients. As the overall uptake of ART remained relatively low in English centres further improvements can be anticipated. However, the medium to long-term effects of these treatment re
