How should social care providers approach the use of technology? The opportunities are huge – but the anxieties are myriad. Will it affect the quality of care, will there be breaches of data and will I understand how to use it? This session will tackle those anxieties head on and provide opportunities to explore how technology and data will shape the future of social care in all settings.
