Case Studies

SCALS consists (currently) of five case studies, each an English health or social care organisation striving to introduce a technology-supported service to support independent
living in people with health and/or social care needs.

We employ a co‐design approach to help participating organisations establish, refine and evaluate their service. To that end, we are conducting in‐depth ethnographic studies of people’s experience of assisted living technologies (micro-level), embedded in an evolving organisational case study using interviews, ethnography and document analysis (meso‐level), and taking account of wider context (macro-level).

Details for individual case studies can be found by following the links on the right hand side.
