dc.description.abstract Pilot studies have suggested that telemedicine is a satisfactory means of delivering nursing services into the home. A home telecare programme in Kansas provided nursing services to homes in four towns in Kansas. The present study examined patients' and nurses' perceptions of a variety of issues related to home telecare. Data-collection methods included in-depth interviews, observation and analyses of archival data from patient records. Patients suffered an average of 4.6 concurrent illnesses. On the whole, patients perceived the system as a valuable resource that offered great potential, although many saw no immediate health benefits for themselves. Nurses were enthusiastic about the prospect of practising in this way, although they did have strong opinions about what types of nurses, patients and illnesses were suited to telemedicine. en
