Dr. Bartz made two presentations about telenursing at the congress to inform nurses about the experiences and opportunities offered by telehealth/telemedicine, and she also presented the ISfTeH at the ICN Telenursing Network meeting and encouraged nurses there to consider joining ISfTeH and its Telenursing Working Group.

She also advertised the 22nd ISfTeH International Conference which is scheduled for December 2017 in Casablanca, Morocco and encouraged to submit presentations to this conference (deadline: August 31st) and to attend the event.

ISfTeH and ICN have a memorandum of understanding to support each other's work in eHealth and telehealth. ICN is currently reviewing its eHealth and Digital Health strategies.
