Room: Conference Center

UMass Amherst Campus

Handicap access available

Join nurses, engineers, other scientists, and entrepreneurs to discuss the state of the science in the self-management of activity, sleep, and fatigue using technology. Within interactive sessions we will explore the intersections between the person using technology, the devices, and the standards for measurement, to advance our understanding of the critical issues in these areas. These include the reliability, regulation, and accuracy of devices; the ethics of data collection and storage, and the importance of user-centered design thinking in the development of products.

This day-long conference is for innovators in industry, academia, and health care who want to make a real world impact by combining the best evidence, technology, and symptom science in a human-centered way. It will feature keynotes from Dr. Lisa Wood, RN, from the MGH Institute of Health Professions, and Dr. Matthew Buman from the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University. There will be speakers from industry, government, the UManage Center and the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS), a poster session, and opportunities for interactions with the experts.

Organized by the UManage Center for Building the Science of Symptom Self-Management (NINR P20NR016599) at the College of Nursing and co-sponsored by the Center for Personalized Health Monitoring, IALS, both at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Registration is now open.
