City, University of London, School of Health Sciences, Disability and Social Inclusion seminar

We invite you to our November seminar:  Technology and quality of life of older people

Venue: Room A227, College Building St John Street, EC1V 4PB

(please give a contact no.)

Speaker: Dr Jacqueline Damant, Research Officer, Personal  Social Services Research Unit, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

The seminar will present findings from an NIHR School for Social Care Research scoping study entitled E-inclusion and access to the ICT sector of older people in England. The project adopted a mixed method approach including a literature review, a focus group and individual interviews with older people, as well as interviews with a range of experts from academia, third sector organisations, and local and national governments. Overall, the results show that many older people report some benefits of using of ICT for certain aspects of their daily life. However, the effects of digital engagement on older people’s quality of life are not universally positive. Furthermore, research methods to measure the social impact of technology use need further development in order to sufficiently capture older people’s experiences in today’s digital age.

Please let us know if you have any special requirements.
