i was lucky enough to be invited to speak at the People Drive Digital Conference at the Open Data Institute in Leeds today http://wearemhabitat.com/events/people-drive-digital/#1480063876233-b7269102-31c3
There were a number of speakers all who have experience of co creation of digital resources to support people in relation to positively influencing their health. I presented our collaboration with Thornley House Medical Centre Patient Group and our support for Health Pledge http://www.healthpledge.co.uk
We had the opportunity to network and discuss issues with like minded people and the response to our community engagement initiative was amazing.
The speakers were lucky enough to have their presentations captured as cartoons and I was quite impressed with mine.
It was great to meet such a wide range of people so committed to using technology sensibly and to empower people to be more informed. As nurses we need to support our communities to embrace technology even simple ones to improve their health and well being.
