WEBINAR: Threat or opportunity: Will healthcare Artificial Intelligence de-skill human clinicians?
When: 12noon-1pm (AEST Sydney time), Thursday, 23 September 2021
Where: Online only ( Registration page: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/will-healthcare-artificial-intelligence-de-skill-clinicians-tickets-168044793501)
Progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to transform the delivery of healthcare, including in screening and diagnosis. These AI tools promise to improve the accuracy and speed of results for patients, and to make clinical workflows more efficient and productive. However AI implementation also raises risks, including clinician deskilling: deterioration of the practical clinical skills, decision-making capacity, and diagnostic reasoning of human clinicians.
In this webinar, we present preliminary findings from our project The Algorithm Will See You Now (NHMRC Ideas Grant 1181960). The potential impact of healthcare AI on clinical skills was one of many topics covered in extended interviews with a wide range of professional stakeholders, including clinicians, developers, regulators, entrepreneurs, and consumer representatives. These conversations reveal the role stakeholders want AI to have in future healthcare provision, the ways they imagine this will interact with the skills of clinicians, and their judgements about whether this will be a good or a bad thing.
The presentation will be followed by responses from three expert panellists specialising respectively in quality and safety, clinical AI development, and medical education.
