Electronic assistive technology




12.30pm to 2.15pm. Seminar starts at 1pm.

Series: Centre for Disability and Social Inclusion seminars

This seminar concerns the impact of telecare (the use of electronic assistive technology in residential services to enable peripatetic support) on the lives of people with learning disabilities. The approach to measuring quality of life will be explained and research on the determinants of quality in residential services presented briefly as part of the rationale for the use of telecare with people with learning disabilities. A study evaluating telecare in terms of its resource implications and its impact on residents’ quality of life will also be presented. The seminar will end with consideration of some of the ethical issues around electronic assistive technology and telecare.
