Track 3. Integration of Next-Generation Technologies in Health Sciences: a Multicultural Approach

In recent decades, the development and advancement of technologies in health areas are having an impact both on the training of university students and on the daily clinical practice itself. For this reason, new technological developments in the area of health sciences are recommended that have an impact on improving teaching and clinical diagnosis. The various technological components (hardware, software, platforms, protocols, etc.) are proving to be very effective in teaching, since they allow the creation of realistic learning environments to acquire experiences and skills that will be used in clinical practice, thus increasing the safety of the patients. The objective of this track is to collect the latest technological advances in the field of health sciences that facilitate the teaching-learning process and daily clinical practice. Therefore, this track aims to be an excellent opportunity to promote and share innovative experiences in both health science education and daily clinical practice.
