Professor Sue Mawson, of the NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber, was approached by the CEO of Sensory Technologies a Canadian corporation developing and marketing mobile and web based enterprise systems for the community health care market.  They were interested in the potential translation of their E-shift service into the UK health market.

E-Shift is a technologically supported distributed model of nursing care, that allows qualified nurses to support non-qualified staff in delivering home care to a range of patients through mobile and web based interfaces.  They were particularly interested in how this model might be applied to Palliative Care settings. 

The potential for this translation is being supported and evaluated by the NIHR CLAHRC YH in partnership with St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield.

If successful this would bring in X amount of funding to the region and also deliver innovative, excellent care to the population of the region.
