from the conference abstract....
|Emerging telecommunications technologies can help break down some of the barriers that prevent seniors and students from communicating on a regular basis. These technologies are also a means to help seniors remain longer in their homes, to monitor patients who are discharged form hospital earlier and perhaps to shorten the overall hospital stay.|
Marie-Madeleine Bernard M.D., President PACE 2000 International Foundation, Ottawa, Mathias Fruhwirth P.Eng., board director PACE 2000 International Foundation, Ottawa
|delivered at the McMaster Centre for Gerontological Studies McMaster University Hamilton, Ontario|
