Project description

"New Data - new Responsibility" - DARE

eHealth applications represent a great opportunity for improving the care of patients - especially in aftercare. However, their use is also likely to lead to shifts in the meaning of normative terms such as responsibility, in role models and in expectations of people and technology: How does the relationship between nurses and patients change when data take centre stage? What role does the design of technology play? What new responsibilities arise when data can be viewed remotely?

The aim of the DARE research project is, on the one hand, to record the effects of eHealth applications in aftercare on the self-image of aftercare, especially nursing. On the other hand, their influence on ethical and social aspects will also be considered.
Within the framework of the research, the roles of patients, doctors, nurses and programmers will be examined in order to clarify existing responsibilities and identify new obligations. In the interdisciplinary team, which includes the disciplines of nursing science, social work, computer science and ethics, a concept and concrete recommendations for the integration of ethical reflection in the development and implementation of eHealth applications will be developed.

The interdisciplinary collaboration of the disciplines of informatics, ethics, nursing and nursing sciences.

Project framework


The joint project DARE is part of the BMBF funding measure "Research on ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) of digitalisation, big data and artificial intelligence in health research and care".
The prototype from the SMILe project, which was developed for follow-up care after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, is used as a concrete development scenario of an exemplary eHealth application.
