Physicians and health professionals increasingly use web, mobile and social technologies to share medical information, teach medical students, and collaborate on research projects or patient cases. This session showcases platforms and tools that allow health professionals to tap into a global network of knowledge and ask second opinions from specialists across the globe.
Under the auspices of the DGH and with the support of the WHO, Sophia developed the ePORTUGUESe platform to support the development of human resources for health in Portuguese-speaking member states. The platform ultimately facilitates collaboration among the participating institutions, delivers health information, and promotes capacity building. Sophia previously worked on a number of projects including a nationwide smoking cessation programme, so she is no stranger to implementing large projects with DGH.
