Techno nurses and empathetic machines: Shifting relations in shaping good care
Professor Jeanette Pols, University of Amsterdam
Thursday 6 April 2017 • 12.00pm to 2.00pm
CRFR meeting room, 23 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh
Anticipations on what new technology will do often range between grand promises, or terrible nightmares. For health care, there is the promise that technology will lead to efficiency, self-management and quality. The nightmare is that technology will make care inhumane, placing screens, beeps or numbers between caregivers and patients. Jeanette will talk about the creative ways in which caregivers and patients relate to technology, and through technology to one another.
