Event description
This event will explore the opportunities and challenges of deploying robotics and physical autonomous systems to support independent living

About this event

In the next in our series of ‘Future of Care’ events, we’ll guide health and care professionals through the latest developments and future opportunities to separate the fact from the fiction.

Can robotic technolgy and autonomous systems fulfil health & care needs?

We’ll explore how robotic technologies and autonomous systems provide very real opportunities to change the way we deliver frontline services across all aspects of health and social care. This could be through physical assistive robotics technology supporting rehabilitation, independent living or improve patient ability and comfort, or social robots providing cognitive support and enabling social interaction for people who are living alone.

Can robotics really fulfil all these needs? What are the challenges of implementation? How will robotics impact the way staff work and the type of workforce we need? Do we need to consider the ethical and social issues surrounding the use of this technology? Come along to find out the answers and to pose your own questions.

Following the event, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Bristol Robotics Laboratory at the University of the West of England. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.

Organiser West of England AHSN

Organiser of How could robotics & autonomous systems change frontline healthcare?

The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) brings together all the key players innovating health and care in our region.

We are one of 15 AHSNs across the country, established by NHS England in 2013. Here in the West of England, our AHSN has earned a reputation for its ambitious, joined-up vision for healthcare innovation and transformation.

Since our launch, our priority has been to work across organisational and geographical boundaries, involving our entire network in both development and delivery to drive transformation that is based on genuine need, is successfully embedded and sustainable.

With our unique expertise and cross-sector connections, we understand both the ‘push and pull’ of demand on healthcare innovation. We actively nurture an innovation ecosystem around health and care, removing obstacles and bringing diverse groups together to conceive and maximise new ways of working.
