2018.11.26 - Precision Health and Nursing (Erica Schorr)
From Margaret Celebrezze on November 30th, 2018
Precision health shifts the focus from treating a disease to preventing a disease from developing by promoting the health and well-being of individuals before they become ill. The foundation for precision health interventions are data – genetics, genomics, electronic health records, and social, environmental, and lifestyle factors.
This seminar will provide an overview of the 2018 NINR Methodologies Boot Camp. Specific topics include state-of-the-art digital health (e.g., wearables, sensors, and virtual/augmented reality), the use of omics data in health care, legal and ethical issues, and opportunities for and challenges to using digital health in clinical and research settings.
