Digital Myopia of Nursing and Geriatric Care

KL Krems Researcher Analyzes Consequences of Growing Digital Monitoring in Care and its Ethical Implications
By: Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences
KREMS, Austria - May 1, 2022 - PRLog -- The growing use of smart control and monitoring tools in nursing increasingly decouples it from ethical and moral considerations - this is the core thesis of a now internationally published analysis by a researcher at Karl Landsteiner University for Health Sciences in Krems (Austria). The argument, published in Nursing Philosophy, convincingly sets out the change in role that digital monitoring and AI-based decision-making processes are bringing about for nurses: Perceiving care recipients as people with individual needs could fall victim to standardized, "smart" decision-making processes. However, involving nursing staff in the development of monitoring technologies or redefining the nursing profession could provide a remedy.
