Åbningssymposium for forskningscenter

I anledningen af etableringen af det nye center for artroseforskning, ”Center of Excellence for Osteoarthritis” (CE-OA) inviteres der til åbningssymposium, fredag den 15. april kl. 13.00 ved Aalborg Universitetshospital.

”Center of Excellence for Osteoarthritis” (CE-OA) er oprettet med støtte fra Eir og er et forskningssamarbejde mellem hospitalsklinikker, forskningsenheder og behandlere i primær sektor. Målet er at løfte forskningen inden for artrose samt gøre centeret til en attraktiv partner for industrien. 

Til åbningssymposiet den 15. april vil der være repræsentanter fra alle aktører på området: Forskere og fagprofessionelle, patientforeninger og ledelser.

På programmet er oplæg om følgende emner: Multifaktoriel forståelse af artrose og smerter, multimodal behandling, nye diagnostiske metoder, forebyggelse, individuelle behandlingsalgoritmer, visioner for rationalisering, effektivisering samt forskning i nye principper for forebyggelse, diagnostik og behandling.

Detaljeret program vil snarest blive annonceret på http://aalborguh.rn.dk/forskning.

Åbningssymposiet foregår i auditoriet på Aalborg Universitetshospital, Medicinerhuset, Mølleparkvej 4. Alle interesserede er velkomne. Tilmelding senest den 8. april via mail til sekretær Jette Frese Andersen, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Social Impact 2016 konference

Den 27. – 28. april 2016 inviterer Esbjerg Kommune og UC Syd til Social Impact 2016 konference. Konferencen afholdes UC SYD, Degnevej 16, 6705 Esbjerg Ø. Konferencen har focus på nye paradigmer og forandringer i socialt arbejde.  Der er fire spor på konferencen - et af dem arbejder med velfærdsteknologi under temaet ”Implementering af velfærdsteknologi -  erfaringer og perspektiver”. Her giver lektor Birthe Dinesen, AAU den 27. april et oplæg om organisatoriske muligheder og begrænsninger med velfærdsteknologi. Dagen indeholder også en workshop, hvor deltagerne vil udveksle erfaringer om implementering af velfærdsteknologi i praksis i samarbejde med oplægsholderne.  Torsdag den 28. april sættes brugernes oplevelse af teknologien i fokus via oplæg og en udstilling om velfærdsteknologi, hvor bl.a. et par borgere med psykiske lidelser fortæller, hvordan de bruger teknologien i hverdagen.  Lektor John Hansen og PhD. Studerende, Claus Østergaard, AAU giver oplæg på denne del at konferencen. Læs mere om konferencen og tilmelding her.

Future Patient Opening Seminar

futurepatient featured-image-small

The purpose of this research program is to develop and test new welfare technology solutions and programs based on new self-tracking technologies. The goal is to reduce the number of readmissions, ensure individual treatment and enhance quality of life for patients. The target groups of the project are patients with heart failure and patients who have undergone knee surgery. Heart failure is a common disorder that affects 26 million people and results in over one million hospitalizations per year in Europe and the United States. The disease is chronic and restricts patients in their daily functions and reduces their quality of life when the heart cannot pump enough blood to the body. Furthermore, the admissions related to heart failure take up a large part of the health budget. The costs of rehabilitation of patients undergoing knee surgery are also expensive for the healthcare system. Worldwide 149 out of every 100,000 persons undergo knee surgery each year. However, telehealth and telerehabilitation projects have not always proven as economically advantageous as the technology needed by the patients is too expensive, and often the training programs are not tailored to the individual patient.
