Ryan Shaw, Michele Kuszajewski and Margie Molloy were recently featured in the News & Observer in an article entitled "Duke officials test, refine robot-nurse." The robot-nurse is a first-generation nursing robot that DUSON and the Duke Pratt School of Engineering students are collaborating on to build and refine. Since the Ebola outbreak in 2014, new technologies, including robots, are being tested as alternatives to human contact to diminish risks for providers as they care for patients with infectious diseases.
Across the world, patients and health care providers are enjoying technological advances that are transforming health care. However, before these items make it to the marketplace, they have to be developed and tested. Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) is home to a place for this – the new Duke Health Innovation Lab, an interdisciplinary center for developing and testing pioneering innovations in technology and patient care delivery.
DUSON and Pratt School of Engineering were featured in an article entitled "Researchers developing real life Baymax, aka a personal healthcare assistant" on the Blastr website.
