Webinar Name: Empowering Patients in a Digitally Connected Health System – Implications for Nursing Education & Practice


Emerging patient-oriented digital health solutions are enabling patients to better manage their health and interact with the healthcare system. Although these solutions bring many benefits to patients and care providers, they are not without challenges. This lively webinar will focus on understanding the scope of consumer digital health solutions and their relevance to nursing practice and education. Presenters will discuss how informatics competencies can enable nurses to harness the power of these tools to engage patients and their families and to ensure the provision of safe, competent, and evidence informed care. Attendees will be able to apply key informatics knowledge and skills related to consumer digital health through a number of learning interactivies built throughout the session. Several resources available to all nurses will be integrated in the presentation and will be made available at the end of the session.
