Track 6. Merging new Technologies with Health Sciences Education and Practice


Presentation

The transmission of knowledge, independently of space and time, using teaching innovation technologies and computer systems is, nowadays, one of the great scientific-technical and cultural revolutions in our society, where the field of biomedical and health sciences, has been able to obtain excellent developments and applications. The application of technological innovations in health sciences higher education and practice has undergone great changes over time, challenging traditional teaching and learning methods. Technological developments expand the possibilities of action and intercommunication between teachers and students and access to knowledge, including computer simulations, stereoscopic visualization systems with augmented reality glasses, computer platforms for managing and using resources and documents, and 3D visualization applications such as Virtual Reality (RV) and Augmented Reality (AR) becoming one of the most currently used in the field of medical and surgical simulation, using these systems of three-dimensional vision with glasses or helmets of stereoscopic vision.

These technological resources do not only define the basis of modern education for teaching of health science but also offer excellent materials to support medical training, promoting undoubtedly the process of learning and of acquisition of practical skills. One of the latest technological trends is the use for teaching medical material in general and anatomical in particular, reconstructed with 3D printers for developing anatomical pieces, exact size, of any specific part of the body. In sum, that technological advances bring us a clear benefit both in medical training and in clinical practice within the field of health sciences.

The aim of this track of the International Conference on Technology Ecosystems for Enhancing Multiculturality (TEEM´19) is to gather some of the most innovative computer based technological developments applied to the contexts of training and practice in fields of Health Sciences. This covers the latest trends, methodological and technological, teaching innovation, from radiology medical treatment and handling software for three-dimensional visualization, to clinical simulators, under stereoscopic vision environments, for practical training, with techniques of virtual reality and augmented reality.
