In the next in our series of ‘Future of Care’ events, we’ll guide health and care professionals through the latest developments and future opportunities to separate the fact from the fiction.
We’ll explore how robotic technologies and autonomous systems provide very real opportunities to change the way we deliver frontline services across all aspects of health and social care. This could be through physical assistive robotics technology supporting rehabilitation, independent living or improve patient ability and comfort, or social robots providing cognitive support and enabling social interaction for people who are living alone.
Can robotics really fulfil all these needs? What are the challenges of implementation? How will robotics impact the way staff work and the type of workforce we need? Do we need to consider the ethical and social issues surrounding the use of this technology? Come along to find out the answers and to pose your own questions.
Following the event, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Bristol Robotics Laboratory at the University of the West of England. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
