CATCH staff speak and exhibit at prestigious King’s Fund Digital Health and Care Congress

Staff from the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH)
spoke and exhibited at the prestigious annual King’s Fund Digital Health and Care
Congress in June.

The conference, which attracted 500 international delegates, brings together
researchers, policy makers, practitioners and innovators to explore how the use of
technology is supporting improvements in the care of people with long-term conditions
and other health and social care needs.

This provided CATCH with an ideal opportunity to promote the expertise of the centre
to potential collaborators.

Sarah Kate Smith, a researcher in CATCH presented past and present findings of the
potential of touch-screen computers to facilitate enjoyable activity with people living
with dementia.

In addition, Arlene Astell, a Professor in CATCH presented ‘Commissioners, staff and
older people's views of assisted living technology’ in a rapid-fire poster presentation.
Simon Butler, Centre Manager for CATCH, and Katherine Easton, one of CATCH’s
Translational Research Scientists, exhibited and networked at the conference.
