Use of videophones to deliver a cognitive-behavioural therapy to hospice caregivers

George Demiris, Debra Parker Oliver, Elaine Wittenberg-Lyles, Karla Washington
2011 Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare  
Informal hospice caregivers were randomly assigned to receive PST from researchers using videophones, instead of communicating in face-to-face sessions.  ...  The subjects were generally satisfied with the videophones during their exit interviews.  ...  The videophones used in the study operated over ordinary telephone lines (PSTN) and were therefore limited in both the audio and video quality. Better quality is available via broadband Internet.  ...
