The International Centre for Translational Digital Health (ICTDH) is delighted to bring you the next seminar in our monthly seminar series:
'An Ethical Approach to the Adoption of Technology in Residential Aged Care'
Speaker: Reeva Lederman, Professor in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne
This seminar asks how technologies for enrichment and support can be deployed in residential aged care in ways that support Tronto’s (1993) Ethics of Care Framework.
It looks at the challenges and resource constraints facing residential aged care post-COVID and considers how carers, residents, technology designers and the technologies themselves can come together to support an ethical approach to providing care. The seminar will discuss empirical work done using both virtual reality systems and domestic robots to provide design suggestions for future approaches.
To ensure we are inclusive, and to account for the different time zones covered by the ICTDH, all seminars will be recorded and made available to those who register to attend the seminar.
