Vård och omsorg på distans (VOPD) – Healthcare and care with distance-spanning technologies

On 20-21 November, Nordregio will participate in the kick-off conference of the project “Health care and care with distance-spanning technologies (Vård och omsorg på distans)”. The kick off will take place in Storuman in north western Sweden, hosted by the lead partner Centre for Rural Medicine.

This is a three-year project that aims at supporting the development of distance health care solutions in the Nordic Region – from primary care and home care services to more specialised health care. The project is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers as one of Sweden’s chairmanship projects.

Nordregio is contributing to the project by measuring the effects on accessibility and regional growth as well as assisting with support and ongoing evaluation.
