New book: Transcultural Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Health and Social Care

 

Presents user-friendly knowledge on socially assistive humanoid AI robots for health and social care

KEY FEATURES

  • Presents user-friendly and stage-by-stage information to help readers appreciate how AI and robots work and how they can be integrated in their work environments
  • Explains why AI and socially assistive robotics need to be culturally competent
  • Helps reduce readers’ fears and change negative prejudices they may have about robots as a relevant tool for health and social care
  • Written by experts in AI robotics and the creators of transcultural health/social robotics
  • Informed by the largest trial conducted with real patients

DESCRIPTION

Transcultural Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Health and Social Care provides health and social care professionals with a deeper understanding of the incredible opportunities brought by the emerging field of AI robotics. In addition, it provides robotic researchers with the point-of-view of healthcare professionals to understand what the health and social care sector – as well as the market – really needs from robotics technology. By doing so, the book fills an important gap between both fields in order to leverage new developments and collaborative work in favor of global patients.
The book is aimed at the non-technical reader, especially health and social care professionals, and explains in a simple way the technological principles applied in the development of socially assistive humanoid robots (SAHR), the values which guide such developments, the ethics related to them, and research approaches in the field, with a focus on achieving a culturally competent SAHR.

Text Box: This Xmas, The ETNA Board is wishing you and your loved ones…

End of year message from the President

Dear ETNA members, 

As we are approaching the end of another year,  I would like to send you all my best season's greetings. This time of the year there are a number of religious festivals, such as, Hanukkah, Xmas, Pancha Ganapati, Zarathosht Diso, and non religious festivals, such as, the Solstice and HumanLight. May you all have a meaningful time to celebrate and reflect. I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, health and fulfilled New Year 2020.

2019 has been a busy year for the ETNA. We had a very successful conference in the Czech Republic, The University of South Bohemia, in June where around 120 people from all over the world gathered to present, discuss, ponder, listen, participate, etc on matters relating to the conference theme: "THE NURSING CURRICULUM NEEDS A CULTURAL REVOLUTION: THE WHY, THE HOW, THE WHAT AND THE WHEN OF A GLOBAL CULTURALLY COMPETENT CURRICULUM". We also had a lot of fun and opportunities to learn about the Czech culture. I want to thank Professor Valeria Tothova and her team for all the hard work associated in hosting the conference. It was FABULOUS!

At the AGM, the ETNA Board decided that we should organise an event to celebrate the International Year of Nursing and Midwifery 2020. So the work for a 2020 conference began straight after the 2019 conference. Dr Maria Jose Morales and Dr Epifania Medina Artiles from the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, have agreed to host the 7th ETNA conference ' Celebrating Excellence in Transcultural Nursing'.  I thank them very much and look forward to being there during 25-28 June 2020.  We are now accepting abstract submissions. Please join us in what promises to be an exciting conference. You can find all the info at https://conferenciaenfermeriatranscultural.ulpgc.es/

In 2020 ETNA will be celebrating its 15th anniversary. To help us mark the occasion the ETNA Board has decided to raise some money through donations from its members and their friends and colleagues. Please consider making a donation and sharing our Paypal link https://www.paypal.me/ETNADonations with your friends and colleagues.

Sending you my warmest season's greetings as well as my best wishes for the New Year 2020. 

With sincere regards,

Professor Irena Papadopoulos
President of ETNA

Message from the ETNA president Prof. Irena Papadopoulos

Dear ETNA members, colleagues and friends, 

The European Transcultural Nurses Association (ETNA) is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2020. Over the years ETNA, a non-fee membership association, run by volunteers, has offered support, advice and opportunities to its 400 members. We organise and deliver amazing and affordable conferences every two years, we provide a regular newsletter in which our members have the opportunity to write about their work and disseminate information about events they are organising, and we maintain a website with useful information and further networking opportunities.

Whilst all this work is being done on a voluntary basis and some donations from the ETNA Board members, we now wish to give you an opportunity to make a donation to enable the organisation to grow and continue its good work. Any donation will be much appreciated and it will help pay the rising costs associated with the ETNA website, the establishment of regular webinars to provide much needed training in culturally competent health and social care, and the mentoring of students and qualified staff (in Europe and globally) who wish to undertake research projects related to transcultural health and cultural competence. 

I wish to thank you for reading this message, for making a donation and for sharing our Paypal link https://www.paypal.me/ETNADonations with your friends and colleagues.

Kind regards



Prof. Irena Papadopoulos
