UBC Nursing and Engineering collaborate to help long-term care residents stay connected

UBC Nursing Assistant Professor Dr. Lillian Hung and her patient partner co-lead Jim Mann at UBC IDEALab and the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHEOS) have introduced their newest device for keeping residents of long-term care facilities connected with their loved ones. Charlie Lake, a UBC biomedical engineering student on the study team, is helping with robot technical support. 

This collaboration between Nursing and Engineering showcases how we, in Applied Science, leverage our multidisciplinary strengths to address complex societal challenges.
