Hoe Virtual Reality (voormalig) IC-patiënten kan helpen bij herstel
Het klinkt misschien niet direct voor de hand liggend: werken met een Virtual Reality bril voor patiënten (na)zorg. Maar na het luisteren van dit aanstekelijk enthousiaste gesprek in deze editie van GlobalCast zal het duidelijk zijn dat de onderzoekers niet over één nacht ijs zijn gegaan. En dat aan de basis van dit onderzoek een even zo belangrijk voortraject zat. Voor deze aflevering van GlobalCast gingen we in gesprek met : Lise Beumeler PhD Researcher Recovery after critical illness - Campus Fryslân & Medical Centre Leeuwarden. Mirthe de Vries student Bewegingswetenschappen en als assistent student betrokken bij het VR-project van Lise. Johan van der Meulen Eigenaar developer 8D games, Leeuwarden. Luister en krijg een mooi inkijkje in de aanpak van hun onderzoek.

Global Cast - Data and Society - a critical introduction by two authors
In this episode we discuss the brand new book : Data and Society: A Critical Introduction. Our guests and authors of the book, Sabina Leonelli and Anne Beaulieu will give a short introduction on this topic and the reason why they wrote it. This book investigates the growing importance of data as a technological, social, economic and scientific resource. It explains how data practices have come to underpin all aspects of human life and explores what this means for those directly involved in handling data. It might be clear that (big) data are part of our every day life and have become very powerful in society and science. Therefore there will be a great need for scientists, who will produce more social responsible data. Grounded in examples spanning genetics, sport and digital innovation, both writers will give an insight into the deep interrelations between technical, social and ethical aspects of data work.

Using data-driven measures to manage COVID-19
As vaccines and effective treatment are continuously under development, governments, private organizations, and scientific institutions develop data-driven programs as an option to mitigate the impact of the pandemic. Is it possible to use mobile apps and data-measures to end the pandemic locally or by nation? What are the consequences in terms of privacy and legislation for citizens and companies? In this episode we will be joined by two scientists who recently researched the developments on these Data-driven-measures to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and digital vaccination passports: Dr. Oskar Gstrein, Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen, Campus Fryslân Data Research Centre and Taís Blauth, PHD candidate with focus on Artificial Intelligence and International Relations. Join us for another episode of GlobalCast

'CANCER PATIENT DURING COVID-19' Student Podcasts hosted by class of Global Health
'CANCER PATIENT DURING COVID-19' How did covid-19 affect our day to day life across the globe, across the population groups, and across the social strata? We are Lina, Roel, Sophie and Anniek and we have created a podcast as a part of our Global Health course. The goal of our podcast was to create understanding and highlight the perspective of people that deal with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic. We tried to get a sense of whether cancer patients are specifically affected by the corona crisis and to what extent the feeling of abandonment lives. Is there still enough attention for cancer patients during the ongoing crisis? In order to gain more insight into these topics, we conducted an interview with someone who has recently battled cancer and combined this with interesting discussions
