The HDR UK North Digital Care Homes Project is evaluating the impact of new technologies in care homes that facilitate digital referrals for residents who become unwell. Outcomes for residents, hospital attendance/admission, health service costs, acceptability and utility to healthcare workers will be evaluated.

This workshop will disseminate interim findings from the study through a series of presentations. It will also be an opportunity for attendees to discuss the findings and help guide the future priorities of the project and beyond.

At this free workshop, attendees will hear from influential researchers in the field, including Professor Suzanne Mason and Professor Simon Dixon, University of Sheffield, Professor Jo Knight and Professor Nancy Preston, University of Lancaster and Graham King, Chief Information Officer, The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
