Conference topics:

From Predictive Analytics to Personalized Care: The Power of Nursing Data

A keynote by Prof. Lisiane Pruinelli will provide you with insights on predictive analytics in the EHR. Predictive analytics have the potential to drive personalized (patient-centered) care. Nursing-generated data along with other data fields that represent the whole person are critical to improve patient outcomes. Nursing, as a profession, has the power to lead innovative ways of using data that represent the whole person for predictive analytics toward better health outcomes. This talk will cover the successes, promises and challenges to empower nurses to be at the center of teams to drive clinical decision-making informed by data.

Toward a Solid Foundation for Nurse Relevant AI and Machine Learning

An inspiring panel session led by experts on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models.
Present current state of nurse relevant ML and AI in Europe and the US will be presented and discussed with ACENDIO members. Best practices for building a solid nurse relevant ML foundation will be proposed with the goal of nurses delivering value at the bedside.

Nurses’ eHealth competencies - strategy and current competency level

A keynote by Prof. Ulla-Mari Kinnunen on nurses' eHealth competencies and strategies.
The content of the Digital Social and Health Services Strategy of the Finnish Nurses Association's will be disclosed.
Furthermore, the level of the eHealth competencies based on a previous national survey to nurses will be presented.

Babel nursing languages? How to harmonize this?

Different SNLs exist in nursing. Are they a richness or a limit to SNL implementation? So many different standards are really a standard to follow? A round table with leaders on the different SNLs will discuss pros and cons of this topic and how to harmonize this critical issue.

ACENDIO working groups

In 2019 ACENDIO started two working groups based on ACENDIO's Constitution and Position Statements. The working groups presented their work and involve ACENDIO members in the last ACENDIO workshop. Join us in the working groups on the development of practical implementation guides on implementing SNLs in education or practice.

Short oral presentations

Join the following short oral presentations:
1) The impact and evidence of digital transformation and health terminology: policy analysis in a European perspective;
2) Community healthcare and electronic nursing documentation;
3) Voice analysis in chronic diseases through artificial intelligence.

Who cares about nursing care? Nursing data as a guide for clinical care and healthcare policies

The keynote of Prof. Gianfranco Sanson will inspire you on how nursing-generated data can guide clinical care and healthcare policies.
Data generated by healthcare organizations can improve the quality of healthcare delivery and reduce the associated costs. As part of such health records, nursing information systems aim to improve data collection and storage methods to enhance the efficiency of decision-making processes. Nursing diagnosis identified by standardized terminologies has great potential to measure the degree of nursing complexity and to be associated with key patient's outcomes.

Oral/poster presentations

ACENDIO members will present their research/projects with oral or poster presentations. Join the several parallel sessions on the 14th ACENDIO conference themes.
