Development of nursing by telephone

Published: 19 April 2018

Every year, researchers studying telephone counselling meet to develop co-ordination, knowledge and discuss important issues and new research. This year's networking meeting with the network "Nursing by Phone" was held at Luleå University of Technology.

– There is a lot of digitalization in health care at the moment, and we see that the 1177 service expands with various housing services linked to the healthcare counselling website. We also discussed future specialist training, and experience of introducing digital decision support for the assessment of care needs in the training of specialist nurses, said Silje Gustafsson, Senior Lecturer in Nursing at Luleå University of Technology, which organized the networking meeting.

The network's focus is nursing by telephone with research, education and implementation. The ultimate goal of the network is to promote better health, knowledge and security for the population.
– For us as researchers in telephone counselling, the purpose of the network is to share our research, create new collaborations and create new collaborations and take part of each other's educational development efforts to strengthen the knowledge of telephone counseling and nursing by telephone in the education and profession, says Silje Gustafsson.

The network is important for coordination and the continued development of knowledge in the field of nursing by telephone. There is a need to meet and share new knowledge with each other to drive the area forward and find new and important issues. It is also important to be able to conduct teaching on telephone counselling and to drive the pedagogical development of the area.
– The network gives us opportunities for collaboration and an opportunity to share experiences that facilitate the implementation of research in teaching, says Silje Gustafsson.
