2:00 PM INTERACTIVE SESSION: Panel Discussion: How to Maintain the Human Element in Nursing & Midwifery Care in an Increasingly Digital Environment?
Some of the basics of nursing & midwifery care hasn’t changed, despite the changing digital environment. It’s important to remember that the critical basics of personal care are of equal or more importance to patients as digitallyadvanced experiences.
This panel will discuss:
- Why technology should be seen as an enabler to assist better personal care; not as a replacement
- How technology needs to be in harmony with hands on nursing
- Patient-centric strategies for wellness, including net-promoter scores through weekly patient surveys that reports on the metrics of satisfaction and promotes individualised care
