The workshop aims to:
  • Understand the new community care landscape that increasingly incorporates digital technologies 
  • Share perspectives across stakeholders  
  • Widen the knowledge of issues around innovation of care through use of digital technologies 
  • Make new contacts

This workshop has been designed to appeal to practitioners, researchers and care providers (including voluntary organizations and small enterprises) and anyone with an interest in digital technologies for care.
