Knowledge Exchange Session - Evaluation in Digital Health and Care

By Sammi Allan, Thu, 25/08/2022

The Digital Health, Housing and Care Learning Network is supported by the Scottish Government Digital Health and Care Directorate. In recent months 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. The recording is available to view on-demand of our recent knowledge exchange session on the topic of evaluation in digital health and care.

We were joined by contributors from Wales and Scotland, who shared their experience, the approaches they have been using, and finally, their reflections on whether digital research & evaluation is really any different to evaluation in other contexts.
