1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Nursing: Advances, Methods and Path Forward (Halifax, Canada)

The workshop, organized by the Nursing and Artificial Intelligence Leadership (NAIL) Collaborative, focused on AI in nursing and provided a platform for discussions about recent advances, cutting edge AI methods, and charting a path forward for nursing AI. These goals were achieved through a combination of presentation types, including paper presentations, invited talks, panels, demos, and general discussion. The intended workshop participants were individuals involved in developing and applying AI for nursing, including those with clinical (e.g., nursing, medicine), technical (e.g., machine learning, computer/data science) and human factors (e.g., visualization and UI/UX) backgrounds. 

Artificial intelligence in nursing: social, ethical and legal implications (Geneva, Switzerland)

Nursing and Artificial Intelligence Leadership Collaborative (NAIL) organized the first international invitational expert think-tank workshop titled ‘Artificial intelligence in nursing: social, ethical and legal implications’. The 3-day think-tank (October 23–25, 2019) held at the Brocher Foundation in Switzerland invited 19 interdisciplinary participants from Canada, Finland, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom. The NAIL Collaborative comprises experts in AI development, AI implementation, nursing, and biomedical ethics, AI in primary health care, AI legal aspects, philosophy of AI in health, nursing practice, implementation science, high-level policymakers for healthcare institutions and international informatics groups, a representative of patients and the public, and Chair of the ITU/WHO Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence for Health. Activities included a pre-event survey to elicit attendees' initial perspectives of AI in nursing, presentations by all invited attendees on their areas of expertise as related to AI and/or nursing and working sessions with attendees, to delve into in-depth discussions. 

The output of these discussions was a highly cited paper entitled "Artificial intelligence in nursing: Priorities and opportunities from an international invitational think-tank of the Nursing and Artificial Intelligence Leadership Collaborative" published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing (
