When it comes to eHealth, Telemedicine and Health ICT, Med-e-Tel is the meeting place with a proven potential for Education, Networking and Business among a global audience with diverse professional backgrounds. .
This years opening session will include Global Telemedicine and eHealth Update (with European Commission, International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth, International Telecommunication Union, International Council of Nurses, European Health Telematics Association, Russian Telemedicine Association, Internet Society Belgium) to name a few. And a excellent session NI/Telenursing with the likes of Dr Peter Murray,Lois Scott, Diane Castelli and Dr Claudia Bartz.
I will not there this year, but Med-e-Tel is the best kept secret in e-health/tehealth and ICT in the world and I would recommend it highly from a personal and professional expereince. Go to http://www.medetel.eu/index.php?rub=educational_program&page=program
