about this event

This conference will explore just how far the delivery of health and care will be improved by the availability of new technology, and what the latest predictions are by those working in the field of how medicine will really be practised in ten years’ time. 

Included in the presentations will be the practical realities of how the UK can move from here to there, such as how to overcome staff resistance to change, how to secure appropriate funding and how the new generations of technophilic patients and carers are likely to respond.


topics include: 

  • The principal technological advances affecting the delivery of health and care in the UK by 2028
  • The impact these advances will have in enabling improved patient outcomes and more cost-effective treatment
  • Plan how the areas delegates are responsible for will need to change in order to realise these improvements
  • Plan training and education to ensure that staff are prepared and keen to embrace new ways of delivering care
  • How to make a strong business case for future financial commitments to realise these changes



The Telemedicine & eHealth Section of the RSM and the IET are calling for abstracts for authors wishing to present their work in poster form as part of the meeting programme.
