The role of telecare and assistive technology in supporting older and vulnerable people is a key area of interest to the Connected Practice unit. Andrew Eccles, a lecturer at the Glasgow School of Social Work and an associate of Connected Practice has a special interest in telecare and its ethical implications. To support one of Andrew’s projects in this area, we put together a short bibliography on ethics, telecare and assistive technology from the last 5 years.
Many of these resources are available through Social Services Knowledge Scotland. For full text access you may need an NHS Athens password, which is freely available to social services workers and their managers in Scotland by filling in the registration from at: http://www.ssks.org.uk/login.aspx
