New GOLTC interest group: Technology and Long-Term Care


Technology and LTC

24 Jun 2024

We are delighted to welcome a new GOLTC interest group on Technology and Long-Term care, with thanks to Jacqueline Damant (Care Policy and Evaluation Centre, London School of Economics and Political Science), Paul Freddolino (School of Social Work, Michigan State University) and Tenzin Wangmo (Institute for Biomedical Ethics, University of Basel) for setting it up and forming the steering group.

The technology and long-term care interest group aims to bring together academics, policy makers, government officials, care practitioners, service providers and commissioners, technology developers, family carers and older persons who are interested in discussing the pertinent issues of technology-use to deliver and support long term care for older adults. The overall purpose is to contribute towards the discussion of incorporating technology in the care process to improve care practices, promote connectivity between relevant stakeholders and across care sectors and to enrich the well-being of older persons. The group will serve as a source of webinars, articles, and other materials and create networking opportunities by bringing together individuals from different sectors who address how technologies can best and reasonably be employed in long term care contexts.

The group will organise webinars to facilitate engagement with different stakeholders working in this area from the fields of ageing, policy, long-term care, ethics, sociology, nursing and more. We hope to engage scholars from around the world to learn from technology deployment practices in areas with varying socioeconomic, cultural, and geographic contexts.
