Makers in the Nursing Unit: Lessons Learned from America’s Amazing MakerNurses

Presenter

We launched MakerNurse last year to find inventive nurses around the country who combine the Maker ethic with their own mission to heal patients. After visiting dozens of nursing units, meeting scores of nurses and patients, and testing dozens of medical hardware hacking components, we are finding we can do more to democratize medical fabrication. Makers, nurses and caregivers are at the forefront of this movement. We outline a dozen examples from Brooklyn, TX, CA, MA, VA, and Montana and the maker caregivers behind them. As we create a community that Makes Health, we look at some ideas on how to make it thrive. All of us can DIY Medtech!
