This West of England Academic Health Sciences Network event is the second of four Future of Care events to raise awareness and knowledge of the future facing developments that are fast approaching the NHS and becoming more mainstream that senior decision makers and leaders in local systems need to be cognisant of and begin to plan for.
Robotics and autonomous systems are increasingly seen as a means of providing independence and more personalised care for people with long term conditions, while alleviating burden on staff and budgetary resources.
This may be through physical assistive robotics technology to support rehabilitation, independence or improve patient ability and comfort, or social robots that could provide cognitive support and enable social interaction for people who are living alone.
At this event we will explore the potential of robotics and autonomous systems to fulfil these needs, understand the challenges of implementation and explore some of the ethical and social issues surrounding the use of this technology.
