Healthcare in Deep Space:
advancing our nation’s leadership in autonomous care
Dr. Robert Thirsk, O.C., O.B.C.
Canada and other space-faring nations are now planning missions to explore the inner solar system. Expeditions to Mars and other deep space locations will be unlike past astronaut missions in low earth orbit. Dr. Robert Thirsk will describe the daunting nature of the deep space environment and the operational profile of these future missions.
In particular, the onboard healthcare delivery systems must evolve. Since real-time assistance by ground-based flight surgeons will be impossible, medical operations in deep space will feature autonomous, intelligent and patient-centric delivery systems. Astronauts will be trained to manage their own health and become empowered with their own health information. Onboard clinical decision-support systems, crew-worn sensors and artificial intelligence will support the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.
Dr. Thirsk will then bring his thoughts down to Earth and consider whether the novel approaches to deep space healthcare could be adapted to serve the chronic care community as well as patients living in remote regions of our nation.
AGE-WELL 2019 will feature an exciting lineup of engaging speakers and sessions, including those below:
- Drinks & Demos Opening Reception
- Lunch n’Learn Workshops
- Innovation Talks
- HQP Science Slam Competition
- HQP Short Talks
- Poster Session
