We assessed the use of videoconferencing as an educational tool for students and emergency nurse practitioners based at a minor injuries unit. Nineteen teaching sessions were conducted by videoconferencing, followed by a debriefing session in which the participants made observations about their educational experience. The participants observed that the experience was rewarding. The success of the teaching session depended on group size: an upper limit of six is recommended. The teaching sessions encouraged debate, independent thinking and peer communication.
