Tensions ahead: How do we build feasible digital health systems that are person-centred and usable?

Abstract: Globally, the term person-centred care has become all-pervasive across healthcare delivery. It has been suggested that it has become synonymous with good quality care. The term is used frequently in the aims and objectives for healthcare service and provision, although what lies behind the rhetoric in terms of practice may be questionable. Further, in an environment which is becoming increasingly dependent on technology, the interaction needs the user experience of both consumer and healthcare provider. There is a challenge as national surveys of health professionals continue to criticize the usability of digital health interfaces. This panel discussion aims to highlight the factors, which should be considered when designing health information interfaces as person-centred for all users. Drawing on our panel’s expertise, we suggest interfaces need to consider two main factors: personalization and user acceptance.

Disruptive technology, leadership and the future of nursing

Abstract: Nurses need to take a strategic leadership role in managing disruptive health technologies that can be adopted to improve health and care within the population. While innovative technology developments continue to advance quickly, systematic changes to the health and care systems are not always geared to take advantage of these advances at the same rate. This panel will look at how disruptive technology will impact nursing practice and strategic leadership factors that shape acceptance/resistance to new technologies.

Aligning digital priorities with nursing and midwifery practice

Abstract: Globally, there has been a paradigm shift towards digital health and care based on the successes of other industries. However, research has identified fractured approaches to the introduction and development of digital health policy and strategy and that they have not been fully informed by nursing and midwifery. As a result of the fractured approaches across the United Kingdom and Ireland, nursing and midwifery see digital as a negative and therefore do not fully engage in conversations. It is a common belief that digital was being “done to nursing” and the nursing voice was not being heard. This was also echoed in the conclusions identified in the Wachter Review. The United Kingdom and Ireland have sought to address these concerns and formed a nursing digital leadership group, “The Five Country nursing and midwifery Digital Leadership Group”. The group informs the national nursing executives and has resulted in the group being constituted as advisors to support them to inform digital priorities, policies and strategies for the United Kingdom and Ireland. Work to date has resulted in a set of key priorities that have been informed and aligned to nursing and midwifery practice. The priorities have been fully informed by all levels of nursing and digital professionals and aim to support nursing in the transition to digital ways of working and ensure that the use of data is meaningful.

Bring the nurse back to the bedside

Abstract: As digitisation continues to increase across Australian health services, the nursing profession has focused on analysing and measuring the way care is provided to the patients. Focus on optimising nursing
workflows and improved care delivery has presented challenges but this is now demonstrating improvements in patient care outcomes and time for care.
