Abstract or Summary

Telepresence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telepresence) offers the possibility of providing a more interactive remote connection between people than the current go-to of Zoom, Teams or similar video conference technology. Telepresence enables the remote embodiment of a participate – taking the level of engagement up a notch. The technology has not reached the level depicted in science fiction – think Avatar, but it does seem to have matured to a level that is worth seriously considering for a variety of remote engagement scenario's – indeed the Waikato DHB has been an enthusiastic pioneer in the area for remote health delivery (https://www.hinz.org.nz/news/395280/Clinical-robots-trialled-on-Waikato-wards-.htm).
