Ethical issues in the implementation of telecare policy

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    This paper looks at the ethical issues in the implementation of telecare policy. Telecare has great potential to benefit people who use services, improving their
    confidence and helping them to remain independent in their own homes. By
    monitoring people’s safety, it can also free up the time of friends and family carers
    who can then spend more time providing social support. It has also been said to
    reduce the costs of social care provision, allowing the more efficient deployment of
    direct care staff.
