New theme issue on Nurses and Midwives in Digital Health for the JISfTeH in 2020

To the chairs and members of the ISfTeH Working Groups
To the members of ISfTeH,

We have an opportunity to prepare a themed edition of the Journal of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (JISfTeH). The ISfTeH Working Group of Women  WoW) has prepared two of these special issues of the journal in 2015 and 2017, each including 4 to 7 papers, and their most recent one will be available shortly.

2015: http://journals.ukzn.ac.za/index.php/JISfTeH/issue/view/10 (pdf: http://www.m2025-weobservatory.org/uploads/3/9/5/1/39512321/jsfteh_vol3.pdf)
2017: http://journals.ukzn.ac.za/index.php/JISfTeH (pdf: http://www.m2025-weobservatory.org/uploads/3/9/5/1/39512321/jsfteh2017.pdf)

The Journal is only available online and the editors are working diligently to establish its place among credible and referenced journals.
Our themed issue would be about telehealth nursing, of course. The editors are very determined to have papers that reflect “science” by which they mean well-done research with intent to produce substantive findings that will contribute to the evidence that drives health care delivery.
Next year, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. We are proposing to you and to the journal editors that we put together 4 to 6 publishable research papers in a Special Telehealth Nursing Edition of JISfTeH that would be available early in 2020 (January or February). The papers would all reflect some aspect of telehealth/telenursing. To begin this process, we are asking all of you to consider submitting an abstract that represents the essence of your publishable research paper. If you are hesitant to reveal all of your research work and findings in JISfTeH, you could consider using a part of your work for this paper. The abstract and paper should be in the traditional research format: introduction/problem addressed; research purpose, research question(s)/hypotheses, sample, setting, data collection methods, data analysis methods, results/findings, discussion, conclusions and recommendations.
All articles submitted must be authored by nurses or midwives, as principal author.
The language will be English.

 

Abstracts are accepted until 15 September 2019 to claudiabartz388[at]gmail.com or veronique.thouvenot[at]gmail.com

Submissions should be done before 30 November 2019
Submissions follow the JISfTeH guidelines:

EU guidelines for the deployment of e-Health by nurses

In the context of increased need for IT skills and competences in digital healthcare systems guidelines focusing on eHealth are of vital importance. Recently – December 2015 – new guidelines were presented at the European Innovation Summit. The production of these guidelines was curated by ENS4Care.

The WeObservatory was interested to hear that the gender balance was also addressed by the board members : “EPHA Board member Peggy Maguire representing the European Institute of Women’s Health points out new technology is often not ’gender neutral’: solutions are ill-adapted to the needs of women who occupy multiple roles. e.g. workers, mothers and wives, family managers and carers for the elderly. Given these constraints, Maguire said it was important that eHealth solutions were user-friendly and tailored to women’s specific roles and responsibilities, also in the workplace”.

More details and specific guidelines are available on the ENS4Care website and a short overview here.

the Virtual Nurse initiative

WeObservatory and UniversalDoctor mentioned in an article mHealth Competence Center has published  on the Virtual Nurse pilot initiative taking place Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, a center recognized for its ability to innovate in patients’ care and healthcare management. Some mobile applications are mentioned by the interviewed nurse, including the UniversalNurse Speaker.

“This field is getting used to the change that ICT mean”, says Emma Gómez, Nursing Department director in Sant Joan de Déu Hospital (HSJD). “ITC mean a change of paradigm for nurses. On the one hand, communication with patients and their relatives has changed: online consultations are more convenient for patients and it is a two-way communication. It is a new kind of relationship, no better or worse. However, a physical consultation can not be compared to a virtual one”, explains Gómez. “On the other hand, ITC allow professionals to manage their time more efficiently”.
