Mentoring for Women and eHealth

The ISfTeH Working Group on Women (WoW) and the Telenursing Working Group (TWG) are collaborating on a mentoring column for the Millennia2025 Women’s Observatory for eHealth, WeMentors: .http://www.m2025-weobservatory.org/wementors.html. The goal of this education project is to increase the number of women mentor-protégé dyads in the areas of eHealth (strategy and policy development) and Telehealth (applications of information and communication technologies to healthcare delivery). The importance of mentors who can share their knowledge and skills with protégés who are less experienced and therefore less confident in their own capabilities cannot be ignored. Women (family members and nurses) are the most constant presence when healthcare is necessary and being delivered. And women are fully capable of contributing to all facets of telehealth worldwide.
The first column is on the WeMentors home page and is titled “Looking for a Mentor in Four Tips.” First, decide what you want from a mentor. Second, look at yourself. Third, what qualities would you like in a mentor. Fourth, consider your availability. The second column presents ideas on the topic “Mentoring: Successful Communication.” The third column is on the topic of “Time Management for Mentors and Proteges.”
Contact Claudia Bartz (TWG) for more information.
Remember the call for submissions for the third JISfTeH Special Issue on Women in eHealth. Your contribution is very welcome!
