Wednesday 5th June 2019 – Novel Digital Healthcare
Last October we had presentations and demonstrations of novel healthcare products organised by the NHS North West Innovation Agency who are tasked with making the NHS better, safer, faster and more cost effective by introducing new healthcare devices, often for personal use. Because of its success we are planning to repeat the event with a range of new innovative products you have not previously seen. Your feedback on these products will help their development and ensure they meet the needs of local people.
Wednesday 3rd July 2019 – Are Digital Games All Bad?
Older people (us?) often have strong views on digital games, social media, emojis, mobile phones etc. particularly their use by younger people (grandchildren?). Are these views well founded? Perhaps you would like to learn more from Dr. Linda Kaye, a Edge Hill University psychologist, specialising in understanding the social effects of digital media.
