Empowering Future Care Workforces

Empowering health and social care professionals through digital technologies has long been a goal in health and care policy. As governments invest in post-pandemic digital transformation, ensuring that workers are empowered, rather than excluded by technology becomes more urgent than ever.

The ‘Empowering Future Care Workforces’ project will generate insight for configuring, verifying and validating systems to best match the needs of staff in dynamic care contexts and  identify gaps in how technology augments their needs.

With partners including the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Neurology and Bristol after Stroke, the project will scope continuing professional development needs and will provide insights to inform the kinds of policy support and interdisciplinary research infrastructure needed for new forms of human-robot collaboration in caring environments during and after digital transformation.

This project is funded by the Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub (TAS Hub)
