Situational tele-mentorship refers to the use of technology to provide interactive, two-way communication between an advisor (the mentor) and a novice (mentee) to enhance the management of a dynamic clinical scenario in real-time.This article develops a conceptual framework to support situational tele-mentorship of healthcare professionals working in rural and remote practices by critically exploring the concept of mentorship within medical education literature and applied to healthcare professionals working in more isolated settings.The situational tele-mentorship framework consists of synchronous telecommunication technologies and the problem-solving process. The end-users of the framework are the mentor located centrally and the mentee dealing with a challenging situation at a remote location using communication technology. The problem-solving process' stages are preparation, identification, action, and evaluation. The mentor and mentee use the 5W1H model, which is a summary of the questions of who, what, where, when, why, and how, applied in two-way communication.This framework provides medical teachers and clinicians with a detailed, yet concise exposition of critical elements required to implement situational tele-mentorship. Healthcare providers can also use this framework to help coordinate resources and manage stakeholders in tele-mentoring situations.
