Abstract

The BCS Nursing Specialist Group in collaboration with BCS South Yorkshire will run our first joint event on 'eHealth and Patient Safety' on Thursday, 17th May 2012, from 17:30 to 19:30pm at Sheffield Hallam University, Collegiate Crescent Campus. The event will be taking place in the Collegiate Hall building, Room A021.

The meeting will be taking the form of a panel that will begin the discussion by making some introductory statements - brief contextualising presentations of up to 15 minutes per panel member followed by an open floor discussion. The attendees will be from a broad range of people working in the areas of Health and IT. The discussion will be centred around the increasingly important issue of how patient safety is affected by the increased use of technology (in particular IT) during their interactions with the Health sector.
