AI and its Applications in Healthcare and Nursing

What is AI and why is it important in Healthcare and Nursing?

AI approaches are increasingly emerging as a key technological enabler in healthcare. Transformational uses of AI have been applied across the entire healthcare spectrum from medical operations, diagnostics, prognosis, through treatment and research. These approaches have had a direct impact on the delivery of healthcare and patient outcomes.

The Nursing profession plays a crucial role in the adoption of AI platforms and technologies. From identifying opportunities, ensuring adoption, providing front-line feedback, nursing plays a vital role in impactful AI. Understanding the strengths (and limitations) of AI empowers the next generation of Nursing professionals to maximize the use of AI and ensure the best treatments and outcomes for the patients under their care.

Over the course of these lectures, participants will gain an understanding of what AI actually is and the basic principles behind it. From these fundamentals, they will then be provided with an overview of the current AI in healthcare landscape, the major domains where AI is being applied, and finally a workable approach to drive the AI application and adoption in the workplace.

With an understanding of AI and its application, participants will have the basic skills and knowledge to allow them to identify opportunities to improve the health outcomes of their patients through AI. This course will also provide participants with a solid foundation to allow them to further develop their AI skillset over the course of their training and careers.

This course is targeted towards those who intend to follow a career in nursing or related disciplines. There are no prerequisites for this course as the material will cover the basics of AI through to advanced applications in Healthcare and Nursing.

The course will be delivered through English.
