  • Do you experience the use of force on a daily basis?
  • Are you lacking tools to reduce the use of force – e.g. calming solutions, behavioural data or sensors?
  • Would you like to help qualify and develop these new technological solutions?

The Telepsychiatry Centre, Psychiatry in the Region of Southern Denmark and the Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark invite you to participate in a workshop about the possibilities of employing technological solutions to reduce the use of force within psychiatry – and we need you and your experiences.

The day will start with presentations from departments and companies that have developed technological solutions healthcare. In the afternoon we will qualify a number of ideas from researchers and generate new ideas based on the inputs of the day.

The goal of the workshop is to gain new knowledge, which can form the basis for new pilot projects that kan test specific technologies in the South Denmark psychiatry operations.
