This year’s Telemedicine & eHealth conference, on 25th & 26th November, at the Royal Society of Medicine at 1 Wimpole St, London will focus on how technology can help people to age well. It will cover a wide palette of issues relating to technology and ageing, including both physical & mental conditions, and the importance of social & spiritual considerations too.
Keynote speakers include Jon Rouse , Director General for Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships, Department of Health. Mary Baker, President of the European Brain Council and Professor June Andrews, the dementia management expert, will discuss mental health issues. Adam Darkins, who heads up the Dept of Veteran Affairs’ telehealth activities will discuss technology use in the US to support people with long term conditions. Sadly the Most Reverend Desmond Tutu is unable to attend in person to close the conference; however he is sending a video message on how technology can help support spiritual wellbeing.
Registration is now open here, with particularly attractive early bird rates.
