Session Code: M2
Session Leader:Steve McCann, HE Programme Manager and Senior Lecturer in Housing Studies, Centre for Housing Studies
Summary:In this session we shall explore the benefits of education to the development and improvement of organisations and the individuals who work for them.

Business Modelling - Tuesday - 12.00 - 13.00

Session Code: TAM4
Session Leader:Rob Wilson, University of Newcastle

How technology can aid patient compliance around medicines - TPM3

Innovation & Technology - Tuesday - 14.35 - 15.35

Session Code: TPM3
Session Leader:Dr Manir Hussain, Chair – Pharmacy Local Professional Network, NHS England - Shropshire and Staffordshire Area Team, Steve Peebles, Product Manager, Carers UK and Cathy Waddell, Cordia (Services) LLP
Summary:Carers UK’s research shows that among other activities carers undertake for their loved ones they have considerable responsibility for managing medication. According to Carers UK’s recent State of Caring 2014 survey, three out of four carers were managing and/or administering medication for the person they cared for. One of their key worries is whether medication is being taken appropriately, particularly when they are caring at a distance. There are an increasing number of products and services available that can provide assistance with medication management. But how can information from these and other telecare devices be aggregated and made available to carers to help support them and provide peace of mind? How can we take this technology forward in way that recognises the importance of family in medication compliance and where else could it lead?

Summary:This workshop will comprise three presentations. The first will outline the context of the AKTIVE project, including the aims of the research and the telecare arrangements at the two local authority research sites. During the AKTIVE project, a systems approach was used to risk assess the use of telecare in five contexts 1) assessment of need; 2) installation of equipment; 3) client use of telecare; 4) monitoring; and 5) response. The second presentation will outline the results of the systems approach, which helped to identify the areas of greatest risk for failures within the system. The third presentation will explore the use of telecare in a care setting to enable older people to remain in their own homes and enhance wellbeing. Telecare is however not without its challenges in terms of its use and adoption and this session will also explore some of the limitations and barriers identified and consider ways these might be addressed.
