As COVID-19 continues to grow in our communities, hospitals are facing a severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). Nurses are on the front lines of caring for patients and cannot provide their best care without PPE. Facing this severe shortage, many Duke health care practitioners have come up with ideas to help continue safe care to patients. Enter the Health Innovation Lab. The Lab has become an accelerator for people to conceptualize, prototype and test ideas and products. It’s a safe space for inventors to create and recreate ideas. In this time, that means that an id
For three years, the Health Innovation Lab (HIL) at Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) has been a place to try out and improve health technology ideas and innovations, just as its creator, Ryan Shaw, PhD, RN, envisioned. Shaw’s vision got an upgrade in February, when the lab moved out of his office and into the 20,000-square-foot state-of-the art simulation area at DUSON.
The Duke Online Learning Collaborative will host a talk on “Emerging Models of Experiential Education” with faculty guest Ryan Shaw, associate professor and director of the Duke Health Innovation Lab, Duke School of Nursing. He will discuss students’ use of wearable devices to self-generate health data, an experiential learning approach that allows students to learn how to use these tools for care delivery.

Ryan Shaw, associate professor, was recently invited to give an NYU College of Nursing Pless Talk. His presentation was entitled "Digital Health and the Rise of Digital Therapeutics" at New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing. After Shaw's presentation, he met with faculty and students to discuss their program of research and the use of digital health technologies.
Pless talks are an invited speaker series at New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing's Center for Nursing Research.
Ryan Shaw, associate professor, and his project "Diabetes Model Care" was recently highlighted at the NIH-NINR Open Council meeting during a presentation by Augie Diana, Project officer at NINR, for SBIR/STTR grants. Shaw’s work was presented as an example of how near real-time data from mobile health technologies can be used to improve diabetes self-management and to facilitate care delivery. This work is supported by NINR through a 3-year R15 award.
Currently in the United States, obesity affects two-thirds of adults. The obesity epidemic is associated with high health care costs – not only individuals but to employers, insurers and health systems. By involving patients and their partners in the weight loss journey, researchers are aiming to prove the effectiveness of joint weight management interventions.
