Nursing in the Intersectoral and Interprofessional Care Process
April 9, 2019
11:30 - 13:00
Nursing is more than a combination of taking care of the elderly and sick. Instead the challenge in future will be to ensure the best possible organisation and coordination of care and support for the sick and/or very elderly, those with multiple diseases and in need of extra care. In the resultant complex healthcare scenarios a continuous flow of communication between the relevant sectors and professionals, the players involved as well as those concerned, and/or patients, is required in order to ensure the safest, most effective and most efficient medical healthcare possible.
Until now, barely insurmountable obstacles have existed between sectors and professions as well as the healthcare institutions involved in nursing, resulting in major deficits in management and the flow of information. In such an environment reliable healthcare is not possible.
The session aims to present concrete IT-based nursing care concepts which have been successfully implemented in practical care scenarios across a variety of sectors and professions, possibly even in other European countries. The session will also benefit from receiving innovative ideas and suggestions for new IT developments.
Submissions should in particular seek to answer the following:
• How can the role of nursing be improved in intersectoral and interprofessional care processes?
• From a nursing point of view, which areas urgently require interaction between care processes and which areas require less?
• What shape could cooperation between physicians and/or pharmacies take?
• What role does the electronic patient file occupy in nursing processes?
• Regarding nursing, what form should communications take between nurses, nursing patients and their family?
