This course is for people interested in Digital Health and how it is related to law and ethics.. The main target group will be people directly or indirectly involved in healthcare. This can be nurses, physicians, dentists, physiotherapists as well as people who have an IT background and would like to learn more about how IT in healthcare has to take into consideration law and ethics. Since the role of technology is increasing in healthcare and since telemedicine becomes more and more important in cross border healthcare and international context, legal regulations are also becoming more important. However, what is feasible and legally allowed in digital health is not always ethically acceptable.
