  • Working Group

The ongoing development and implementation of digital solutions in nursing care is the subject of a symposium in Germany in September. The symposium will consider the application of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) systems as well as telenursing applications. 

The discussions will consider how IT-based applications for documentation and the care work itself will facilitate new forms of learning and evidence-based nursing. 

The organisers have also launched a call for abstracts, to fill the final 10 speaker slots. Potential topics could be:

  • Ethical challenges of the man-machine-interaction
  • Safeguarding autonomy and quality of life
  • Privacy and data security
  • Ethics of digital nursing documentation 
  • Issues arising from digital transformation
  • Issues connected to specific digital applications. 

The deadline for abstracts is 15th April 2020. For more information about submitting an abstract or attending the symposium please see the attached document.
