Ethical evaluation of the interventions - Luleå University of Technology, Sweden

The research project Ethical reasoning and considerations in connection with the implementation of digital services in the health and social care in municipalities is conducted within the framework of RemoAge.

Two qualitative studies on health care with digital services are planned in five municipalities participating in RemoAge in northern Sweden.

One study is focusing on the staff perspectives and the other study on care receivers and their family member´s perspective. Data collection is planned through semistructured diaries, focus group interviews and individual interviews. During week 5, 2016, the first diaries are assigned to local project managers in municipalities for the documentation of ethical reasoning and considerations made in connection with the digital services offered in health care.

Lecturer Britt-Marie Välivaara at Luleå University of Technology is responsible för data collection.
