Welcome to a new issue of Perspectives for Special Interest Group (SIG) 18, Telepractice. Much appreciation is due to Editor Lyn Tindall, Associate Editor Susan Grogan-Johnson, SIG 18's Continuing Education and Editorial Committees, and a stellar cast of authors. This issue's integrating theme is a topic of great interest: Technology for Telepractice.
The issue begins with an invited commentary by bioengineer David Brennan, a pioneer in telepractice. Brennan wisely observes that “to move telepractice toward the future, we should look to the past.” Moreover, he downplays the importance of teletechnology, claiming it is “just a tool, an enabling infrastructure.” Brennan challenges readers to innovate new technologies, improve reimbursement, reduce licensure barriers, and work “to eliminate the need for the preface ‘tele’ and make telepractice just the way we do practice.”
