Bring your clinical collaborators to Pervasive Health 2015
Dear participant at Pervasive Health 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015,
**We would like to invite you to bring one or more of your valued clinical collaborators to Pervasive Health 2015.**
If you are doing a project involving doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, or dieticians, **The clinician should submit a 1-2 page "medical perspectives" abstract of recent or ongoing work in the clinical setting,** as well as **bring a poster for the poster presentation at Pervasive Health 2015** - to facilitate discussion with the members of the community.
We would like to offer a discounted price of EUR 60 for your clinical collaborators (who must be a medical professional), including a one day participation at Pervasive Health 2015 with access to short paper presentations, as well as the poster and demo sessions.
The main purpose of medical perspective abstract session is to provide the views of practitioners to the pervasive health community in order to have a more clear understanding about the real needs of healthcare operators and in this way shorten the gap between technologists and the every-day needs of practitioners. Perspectives could include qualitative accounts of successful or unsuccessful applications of pervasive health technologies as experienced in the clinic that may facilitate a dialog between technical and medical researchers at Pervasive Health 2015.
Medical perspective abstracts can also be used to report on important quantitative or qualitative results from ongoing or completed clinical trials involving pervasive health technology as part of the study setup. We seek medical perspectives of pervasive technologies across the full environment of healthcare, starting from clinical applications to wearable, ambient and home based health monitoring technologies up to assistive devices and educational or motivational aids. A successful medical perspective abstract communicates experiences with using pervasive technology or suggestions for requirements of new technology following the typical medical abstract format in a short and concise style.
