12th ACENDIO conference, Falun 2019
eHealth and nursing:
preparing the profession for the future

12th ACENDIO Conference highlights – summary by Prof. Dr. Wolter Paans

The program contained three inspiring key note speakers, parallel sessions with oral presentations, poster presentations and workshops. With attendees from 20 countries and 80 excellent presenters ACENDIO's 12th biennial conference was again an engaging, sharing, and disseminating conference.

Above all, the ACENDIO community seems to be working towards the second, third, fourth and fifth generation electronic health records with unimageable future possibilities. Without all the work now presented, these new generations never will have a change. There is no doubt about the fact that patients will benefit significantly from the ACENDIO community, yesterday, today, and in the future.  This conference shows that ACENDIO goes, now with its legal status, on with its mission. With new generations of nursing technologies, and above all, with new generations of nurses, nurse educators, researchers and innovators.
