Technology in Palliative Care (TIP) study published in JMIR Aging
I am delighted to annouce that the Technology in Palliative Care (TIP) study is complete has been published in the ‘Journal of Internet Medical Research (JMIR) Aging’ .
The aim of this modfied Delphi study was to identify research priority areas for digital health in palliative care.
The priorities identified in this study represent a wide range of important emerging areas in the fields of digital health, personalized medicine, and data science. Human-centered design and robust governance systems should be considered in future research. It is important that the risks of using these technologies in palliative care are properly addressed to ensure that these tools are used meaningfully, wisely, and safely and do not cause unintentional harm.
We hope the findings of this work will help researchers, healthcare professionals and policymakers explore how innovations in emerging technologies can improve palliative care.
