Webinar: Long-Term Care Technology lessons from Germany and the Netherlands

Date: Wednesday 17 April 2024

Time: 14.00 – 15.00 CET (English)

The rapidly increasing ageing population and rising shortage of healthcare workers are placing significant pressure on our healthcare system, particularly in long-term care facilities. In response, these facilities are increasingly adopting healthcare technologies. A development we see everywhere in Europe. Although there are well-defined theoretical implementation models and roadmaps, it is often challenging to apply them in practice. What can we learn from each other?

About the webinar

Two experts on digital care will share their expertise and experience on the implementation of healthcare technologies in long-term care in the Netherlands, Germany and Europe. This webinar examines the current state of technology adoption, uncovers the factors at play, the obstacles and the opportunities in moving forward. Each speaker will be followed by interactive sessions in which participants can reflect on their experiences and ask questions.
