A research program focused on innovative e-health practices

Innovation made possible by the advent and proliferation of digital technology is at the heart of the work being conducted by the Chair since its inception in 2005. Its early achievements involved the development of a virtual nursing practice targeting healthcare service users living with a chronic condition. Today, its work is focused on finding new possibilities for the development of digital interventions and operating a data warehouse created for the purpose of evaluating nursing care performance. This sphere of knowledge is growing rapidly and the Chair intends to pursue its research in this field in the aim of supporting not only service users more effectively, but also nurses in their clinical practice and care management duties.
