Telehealth Policy Debate: There is Greater Financial Value in Telehealth for Consumers than for Providers

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The affirmative team provides a defense of the topic wording that can include parts or its entirety.  They will offer an initial “case” in their opening presentation, rebuild it in their response by refuting the negative attacks and offer key final comparisons in their rebuttals.  

The negative team’s job is to disprove the affirmative thesis.   Their initial presentation should poke holes in the initial affirmative presentation and outline any of their own proofs for their side.   The negative response will point out the key points unanswered by the affirmative response and refute attacks on their proofs.  Their rebuttal will offer key final comparisons.  

The audience will vote for the most persuasive argument.
