Knowledge Exchange Session - Evaluation in Digital Health and Care

By Sammi Allan, Fri, 29/07/2022

The Digital Health, Housing and Care Learning Network is supported by the Scottish Government Digital Health and Care Directorate.

Over the Summer, our team have been delivering a number of knowledge exchange sessions with colleagues from Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The sessions provide opportunities for staff, who have an interest in how digital tools can be used to support service delivery in health, home and care settings, to exchange learning and experience.

Register and join us on 12th August 2022, at 11:00-12:15 for the next session which will discuss evaluation in digital health and care.

We have asked our contributors, from Wales and Scotland, to share their experience, the approaches they have been using, the expertise required to undertake evaluation in digital health and care and finally, to reflect on whether digital research & evaluation is really any different to evaluation in other contexts.
