This case study compared the delivery of a psychoeducational intervention with hospice caregivers, delivered in person and via videophone. This study demonstrates the feasibility of using telehealth tools to deliver interventions in hospice and identified ways or protocols that can be adapted for telehealth delivery. The caregiver expressed satisfaction with the telehealth experience, supporting the value of video communication. The results have laid the framework for further implementation of an ongoing, randomized clinical trial examining the use of telehealth tools for delivery of psychoeducational interventions with hospice caregivers.
