Artificial Intelligence for Nursing: Ethical, Legal and Social Implications



Previous groundbreaking technologies, such as imaging, prosthetics, and telehealth, have improved healthcare around the globe. Over the past several decades, another new and promising technology has emerged-artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being adopted in healthcare to support patient diagnosis, improve medical decision making and treatment, and augment health research. Nurses, the largest sector of healthcare providers, are beginning to use this technology to improve quality of care, enhance patient experience, and reduce health costs. With many promising benefits, the use of AI technologies raises many new challenges for nurses. This workshop aims to address the inevitable ethical, legal and social implications that arise with the growing proliferation of AI systems. This workshop will elucidate the implications of AI in the microcosm of nursing and its broader ramifications in global healthcare.
