Abstract

The relentless growth and diversity in technology aimed at automating healthcare delivery arguably challenges nursing’s central position in care delivery as new technologies augment or replace nursing activites. Whilst not a new phenomena, this paper argues that the scale of change in the triadic relationship between the person receiving the service, the nurse and the computer, needs us to rethink our relationship with technology. The emergence of a digital humanism provides nursing with the opportunity to be active influencers rather than passive bystanders, to ensure that personhood remains central to how care is delivered.
