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
The midwifery workforce is generationally diverse, which puts greater emphasis on the importance of mentorship and providing guidance to new graduates. To ensure effective and efficient collaboration among midwives, learn how to:
- Acknowledge each other’s strengthens and weaknesses and find a way to balance and positively leverage the differences in skill sets
- Overcome issues of time constraints and higher acuity that may impact the quality of mentorship
- Ensure the continuity of basic nursing care in hospital training to support new midwives in their transition into the working environment
