Central Foyer, Hall 3.2 | 4.2
The aim of patient empowerment is to strengthen the role of patients by providing them with information, enabling them to actively participate, and involving them in decision-making processes. The aim is to involve the patient more in the treatment and decision-making process. Digitisation in the healthcare system plays an important role in this context, as patient empowerment involves patient websites, apps and mobility solutions. The aim of the tour is to show what patient empowerment can achieve in nursing care and how technology can be efficiently incorporated into medical care without ignoring the need for social contact.
