iCARE-PD: INTEGRATED PARKINSON CARE NETWORK

Integrated Care, Parkinson, eHealth, Co-Design, Patient Centered Care

The iCARE-PD project proposes a paradigm shift in Parkinson Disease care from an (in)outpatient care to “home-based and community-centred health care” based on integrated care, self-management support and technology-enabled care (TEC) following a patient-centred approach. The iCARE-PD project are conceived as a form of experience-based design involving patients, caregivers and healthcare providers and allowing each stakeholders to share their stories and prioritize issues for improvement, and collaboratively “co-design” a home/community-based care delivery model (Bate & Robert, 2006, 2007; Donetto et al., 2015; Iedema et al., 2010)…

COGNEAT: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) TO REDUCE INFORMATION AND COGNITIVE OVERLOAD IN HOSPITAL

Hospital, Information Overload, Cognitive Overload, Participatory Design, Machine Learning, eHealth Technology

Sylvie Grosjean of the Communication Department is collaborating with the Montfort Knowledge Institute (Institut du Savoir Montfort) on a research project (CHRI funding) which investigates how an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology could help clinicians and nurses working in hospital to deal digital stress. The main purpose of the project is …

PATIENT-PHYSICIAN INTERACTION, SENSORY WORK AND TELEMEDICINE

Patient/Physician interactions, Sensory Knowledge, Telemedicine, Simulation Lab

The use of telemedicine for patient consultations has been increasing to provide care to remote populations, minimize travel costs and reduce wait times, among others (Ontario Telemedicine Network, 2019). One particular challenge of patient/provider communication in this context that needs further investigation concerns the sensory dimensions of clinical practice, since providers conduct physical examinations and establish a diagnosis without direct access to a patient’s body (Oudshoorn, 2008; Maslen, 2017; Lupton & Maslen, 2017).

The objective of our study, conducted in partnership with the medical simulation centre of a large university-affiliated hospital in Ontario, was to describe how « the sensory work of medical decision-making » (Maslen, 2016) is accomplished during videoconferencing consultations…
