The Cambridge Wireless Healthcare Special Interest Group (SIG) in association with IET, Cambridge Biomedical Campus and EAHSN present ‘Management of long term, chronic conditions – Technology innovation in patient pathways’.
This half-day topical event will highlight the challenges and opportunities technological innovations present to the health service now and in the future. It will follow the patient pathway; from initial contact with an NHS member of staff (such as their GP), through to referral, primary treatment and support from social care services. Speakers will address the issues surrounding the remote monitoring of carers and how that maps onto the technical world with a focus on clinical improvement and patient support, safety and confidentiality.Confirmed speakers: Keith Swinburne of Papworth Hospital, Dr Afzal Chaudhry of CUH, Dr Andrew Grace of University of Cambridge, Dr Rachel Morris of University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and Charles Lowe of The Royal Society of Medicine.
Editor’s note: our Contributing Editor Charles Lowe will be the kickoff speaker.
