Just ahead of International Nurses’ Day on May 12th, The International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (ISfTeH) and International SOS have published their retrospective report on a year during which nurses demonstrated their skills and engagement for better health and care for people worldwide.
The ISfTeH Telenursing Working Group envisions nurses extending their reach through technology and improving the quality of healthcare delivery worldwide.
In parallel, the ISfTeH Working Group on Women develops actions to support and promote the role of women in the areas of telemedicine and eHealth in the world.
International SOS provides medical and travel risk insurance. Nurses make up a large part of their global workforce and use telehealth extensively.
In the report you will find:
-A view on what COVID-19 means for digital health among nurses & midwives
