Digital Health Week 2021 | 14th-17th February, 2022

In 2022, we will again be bringing you a joint event between the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne!

Digital Health Week (14-17 February 2022) is an opportunity for anyone interested in digital health to participate in a program of virtual events and share research and ideas. It is designed to be both informative, provocative, and a showcase of the innovative work being undertaken in digital health across the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and beyond. Digital Health Week 2022 will bring together researchers, health services, industry, and the community to build person-centred eHealth collaborations.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Abstracts for oral presentations and ePosters are invited for Digital Health Week 2022. The conference theme is:

Reality check: how do we make technology work in real life?

This year’s theme will have a focus on discussing how we can make technology truly work as a support tool for people in life and across health care systems. We want to explore the mismatch between real life and the potential of technology to support health and wellbeing. Our vision is to have diverse speakers who challenge us and spark discussions that might help us all to harness technology in different ways for more inclusive healthcare and support.

Abstracts are invited from researchers in the field of digital health, including (but not limited to) the following research topics (presented in alphabetical order):

  • Codesign and consumer-centred technologies
  • Data science
  • eHealth education
  • Equity, equality, and the digital divide
  • Ethics and law in digital health
  • Games and gamification for health
  • Learning health systems
  • Mobile applications and wearable technologies
  • Optimisation and implementation of technological systems
  • Social media and social networking sites
  • Technology and the health workforce
  • Telehealth and telepractice
  • Virtual and augmented reality

Presenters can nominate their preference for an ePoster or presentation format, with both formats providing presenters a speaking opportunity to share their work.

The conference is keen to showcase Honours and Higher Degree Research Students to highlight their research – so if you are a research student, please indicate this on the submission form. 

Abstracts are due at 11:59pm Sunday 3rd October 2021 (no extensions). Please don’t hesitate to contact jacqueline.wells@sydney.edu.au if you have any questions.
