Dear Colleagues

The School of Post Graduate Studies at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) and University West Sweden in collaboration with South African Swedish University Forum (SASUF) would like to invite you to participate and present a paper at the special session in Cape Town on E-HEALTH on the 18th May 2018 at UWC School of Public Health (SoPH), Robert Sobukwe road, Bellville, Room 1C from 09:00 to 13:00.


The theme of this session is: Understanding the Burden of Disease in Sweden and South Africa, and its Impact on the Health Systems of the two Countries in the Future


The aim with this activity is to bring researchers within health, especially E-health together. A first ambition is to get together and present ongoing research for each other. The second ambition is to identify potential cooperation. What could be achieved by using existing resources? What can be done with the help of seed funding (for instance via grants from this project)? For what do we need more substantial funding? (This can then be presented to the funding agencies).


The agenda for this special session is E-Health and since it is a first joint session, it is open for a broad spectrum of E-health issues, for instance:

·       Prevention care e.g. systems for education and support regarding infectious diseases

·       Pre-hospital E-health e.g. decision support for emergency personal, technical equipment for distance diagnoses etc, drones for acute medicine, apps for HLR, etc

·       In hospital /care units e.g. Apps/systems for diagnosing and monitoring, decision support, support for routines and medical procedures, etc

·       Post-hospital care e.g. monitoring patients on distance, social media for information/consultation and patient-to- patient support, etc


The first few hours will be presentations, followed by one-hour discussion. Ideally a presentation will cover a range of different ongoing research projects at a department/within a research group, but also presentations of single research projects are welcome. The presentation should focus on the main idea and aim with the research rather than presenting scientific details.


Call for submissions:

If you also want to contribute with a presentation, please send a brief description (abstract) to Temi at / 021 959 2995.
