Integrating Technology and Healthcare- Let's Make a Deal!


In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Michael McGillion and discuss technology and innovation in nursing. We chat about the integration of technology and how it can support care delivery. We look at innovations and projects that he has been working in as a nurse scientist. We also discuss the difficulties with automation, AI and over-reliance on technology in healthcare. Some nurses love new tech, some absolutely hate it!
