Welcome to the e-Health Nurses Network

December 2014 Update: In a new approach now focused mainly on news this Network seeks to keep you up-to-date with the latest UK-wide e-Health related environment in it's widest sense. We have gradually evolved since first starting in 2003 (for history see e-Health Group) and these pages thus offer a fascinating UK-wide source of e-health information covering over 10 years.

This Network is for all of the UK Countries and local regions - whether you live in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or England - you will find a local page relevant to you!

Be informed, be involved, be innovative - e-Health is the future!


AIM : "To facilitate professional development through the exploration of e-health and it's impact on patient care within a new collaborative environment"

 

The eHealth Nurses Network defines e-health as the "The promotion and facilitation of health & well-being with individuals & families and the enhancement of professional practice by the use of information & communication technology".
