International Conference for Nurse Practitioner / Advanced Practice Nursing

Dutch Innovation Plaza

This year the ICN NP/APN Conference features a very informative Innovation Plaza. This innovation square is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Health. Located in the heart of the conference venue, the team of “De Zorginnovatiewinkel” (Healthcare Innovation Store) showcases innovations in line with the three main themes of the conference:

  • The changing role of the nurse practitioners
  • Leadership in the transformation of care
  • Interprofessional collaboration and the role of nurse practitioners

And there is more to explore! At the Dutch Innovation Plaza you can grab a cup of coffee/tea or a sandwich and join a variety of workshops, interactive lectures and play the eHealth quiz. Or join us for one of the hands-on workshop on eHealth and robotics, implementation of eHealth, interprofessional collaboration and scrum for care. Discover proven and emerging eHealth solutions for improved care which will be pitched by some of the leading Dutch innovators. At the plaza you can experience eHealth yourself, for example by trying out different Virtual Reality applications in health career test-drive a variety of apps, smart tools and robots. The Dutch innovation plaza is the conference hotspot where you can experience the meaningful use of eHealth while having fun! 

The Plaza will be open from Monday-Wednesday and will present different inventions daily. Access to the Dutch Innovation Plaza is free for all conference delegates.

The Dutch Innovation Plaza is supported by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and will be opened at the Welcome Reception by the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Deputy Prime Minister Hugo de Jonge on Monday 27 August.

Imaging for guidance of minimally-invasive interventions
Minimally invasive treatment has become a feasible alternative for open surgery in an increasing number of interventions. The oldest example is coronary angioplasty instead of bypass surgery, but many more conditions that are eligible for catheter-based or laparoscopic approaches are emerging. Minimally invasive interventions offer advantages in the form of less trauma, less blood loss, lower infection risk and faster recovery of the patient. Image guidance is of paramount importance for successful treatment, as the working field is not directly accessible. I will present some examples of image guidance for cardiovascular interventions, ranging from modalities that are available today to emerging experimental technology that we are currently working on at Erasmus MC. This will provide a starting point for the discussion of how imaging can impact patient care and management during and after the intervention.

Gijs van Soest, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Thorax Center of the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. He leads the research into new technologies for image guidance of catheter-based treatments in the cardiovascular field. Van Soest was trained as an experimental physicist (MSc University of Groningen 1997; PhD University of Amsterdam 2001), with special expertise in light transport and optical spectroscopy. He worked on remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases (KNMI 2002-2005) prior to switching to medical imaging. He joined the Thorax Centre as a postdoc in 2005, was appointed as faculty in 2010 and promoted to Associate Prof in 2015. He is one of the founders and scientific directors of the Optics in Cardiology conference. He is the author of >80 peer reviewed publications, and an inventor on three patents.

Angelien SiebenNurse included
In the current national discussion about the shortage of nurses she sees the possibilities of technology as a (part of the) solution. But nurses need to get more involved in these technologies. They are practical and solution-oriented. And they know a great deal about care and patients and they face daily the limitations of the current organization of care and the sometimes limited resources. They can take the lead in assessing the current technological possibilities and use them to improve or maintain care. She would like to discuss this with you.

Angelien Sieben, MANP is a nurse practitioner in vascular surgery and works as a REshape Fellow at the REshape Center of the Radboud Medical Center. There she represents nursing in innovation. She is also working on her PhD and was until recently chair of the Nursing Advisory Board of the Radboud Medical Center.

De ZorginnovatiewinkelDoctor eHealth
In 2017 citizens of the Netherlands could choose from a whopping amount of healthcare related apps in the app stores. Approximately 370.000 apps were available for download. And that’s just apps, there is an abundance of other solutions like Virtual and Augmented Reality, Healthcare robotics, GPS tracking for dementia, self-management devices to name but a few. Where do you start with e-health in this ocean of possibilities? How can you find out if there are suitable e-health solutions for the challenges you’re facing? And once selected a promising solution, how do you implement it? At the Dutch Innovation Plaza you can consult Dr. e-health with any of these questions. In collaboration with some of the most talented health tech innovators, we will help you in your quest for meaningful use of eHealth.

De Zorginnovatiewinkel is a health innovation “pop up shop” located in publicly accessible locations (www.zorginnovatiewinkel.nl). It rotates cities across the Netherlands, showcasing health innovations and inviting the community to engage. The pop up democratises ideas about health innovation and helps citizens and health professionals in accelerating with the adoption of patient centred modern healthcare.

The future will change healthcare and so it will change your job. Would you like to discover how it will affect you? Maybe your new colleague isn’t  human anymore. But if a robot is able to replace your colleague, what about you? Are you future proof?

Titjana Ruygt (Director at BKV) and Monique Damen (Consultant Healthcare at BKV) will introduce you in the future of health and otherwise your future.

De ZorginnovatiewinkelWorkshop Scrum4Care
Is interprofessional collaboration the magic bullet that will optimize healthcare and overcome the shortcomings of integrated care? Recently collaboration leaping over the silos of healthcare has been on the uprise. Interprofessional teams  working as one instead of in a chain of events, could lead to more patient centred and holistic care. But working in teams poses challenges. How do you make the right patient centred decisions, how do you stay aligned with healthcare providers outside your organisation and how do you avoid creating yet another administrative monster? In this workshop you will get acquainted with the principles of SCRUM, an agile work method that tries to avoid heavy documentation and focusses on trust and value from a patient and professional perspective. With a case-based approach you will learn about the different roles of a SCRUM team and the first steps you can take to introduce this innovative way of working in an interprofessional setting.

Gabriela Aguirrezabal, Garage 2020Workshop Design Thinking
Nurse practitioners are Design Thinkers, only they don’t know it yet!
Too often technology is pushed into the organisation without testing the real needs of staff and patients. This leads to poor outcomes, increased cost and frustration for all involved. In order to avoid misalignment between technology and needs, new strategies are needed. In business and industry the rise of Design Thinking principles have led to more user-friendly and user-centred applications of technology. This creative and human-centred problem solving approach could yield success for healthcare as well. In this hands-on workshop you will learn to understand the basic principles of Design Thinking and how to apply them in your everyday work.

Gabriela Aguirrezabal is a Design Thinking Expert. She has proven herself as a consultant, teacher, coach and entrepreneur. At the moment she is one of the driving forces behind Garage2020 that after Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Twente and Leiden now also opens in Friesland. Thanks to new ways of thinking, designing and creating Garage 2020 wants to instigate a radical innovation in (youth) healthcare.
