Donna Williams, KO's Telehealth Coordinator and Carol Wood, Menoyawin Health Centre's Telehealth Coordinator provided workshop participants with an orientation session about the use of the telemedicine suite of tools. A live connection with the Deer Lake Nursing station was completed with Lily Sawanas, the Deer Lake Telehealth Coordinator (see the pictures from the session).
Clarification about the telemedicine suite and video conferencing equipment that is now available in most Sioux Lookout First Nations was discussed using the hand-out prepared for this gathering.
Workshops held in Fort Severn during the week of February 10 highlighted many of the achievements made over the past two years of the Smart Communities Demonstration project. Pictures of the four day series of sessions and special events are available in the K-Net Photo Gallery.
The information from the two previous ICT community planning and community engagement sessions was reviewed and discussed each day to identify what has changed and how these communication tools are now being used in Fort Severn. These two sessions are available on-line (December 1999 session and the January 2002 workshops) for review. The remainder of each day was spent examining the work that remains to be completed during the final year of the Smart Communities demonstration project.
