Telemedicine technologies have become increasingly popular as a means of delivering general and specialist healthcare to individuals and communities

situated in rural areas who have difficulties in accessing health-care services. The importance of interaction between patients and healthcare professionals has been highlighted as impacting on patients’ understanding of medical

information, their perception of their own disease and their quality of life. This is particularly relevant in speech language therapy, where conversation may already be challenging, and differing methods of communication maybe

required. The introduction of telemedicine into health-care provider-patient interaction adds an additional dynamic in which these interactions occur. The aim of the current study was to understand how medical tasks are achieved in physical examination sequences during speech language therapy consultations delivered via telemedicine videoconferencing. The study also examines how different participants in the consultation are involved in achieving these tasks when using telemedicine videoconferencing
