From robots to surveillance devices, practitioners working with older adults are increasingly faced with evaluating the need for and the ethical use of technology to support clients at home and in a wide variety of care settings. This session will evaluate a range of devices available for use with older people and we will discuss the risks, benefits, legal and ethical implications for use in practice.
This activity is intended for psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Identify potential benefits of gerontechnology for older adults.
- Identify potential harms of technology for older adults.
- Evaluate the ethical use of gerontechnology in practice with older adults.
