Title: Embracing a growth mindset in the age of medical robots


As new discoveries are being made on a daily basis, medical technology is experiencing advancements in robotic applications. These intelligent machines will progressively become part of our hospitals technological evolution and medical staff. Henceforth, NURSES will inevitably need to work closely with medical robots. We should take the necessary steps now to gain a better understanding of how these mechanical wonders enhance our practice in order to have a more significant role and for successful adoption of the technology and related changes in patterns of care.

Medical robots have some inherent advantages over humans. A machine does not need sleep or food and does not have prejudices that we humans so often have. This could change the way we treat people who are sick and vulnerable. Robotics involves designing and implementing intelligent machines which can do work considered too dirty, too dangerous, too precise or too tedious for humans. Furthermore, it has the potential to expand surgical treatment modalities beyond the limits of human ability.

In this presentation, distinct categories of robots in health care delivery such as surgical, medical, service, and rehabilitative care will be explored.  The challenges, opportunities and implications of emerging technologies to the future of the nursing profession will also be discussed. While there are concerns about machines replacing people in the workforce, with some preparation and forethought, NURSES can make sure the human touch stays relevant in medicine while concurrently taking advantage of our AI friends.
