Two new Videocom (http://videocom.knet.ca) research papers about the effective use of videoconferencing in health applications are now available online.

Both of these papers are the first papers from larger research projects and there will be further papers coming next year from these projects. These papers will be presented at the upcoming Canadian Society of Telehealth conference in Vancouver (October 3 to the 6).
