Leaving patients to their own devices? Smart technology, safety and therapeutic relationships

Project Details


Increased use of health monitoring devices by patients is becoming an important aspect of self-care and preventive medicine. It may also enhance accurate symptom reports, diagnoses and prompt referral to specialist care. However, the development, marketing and use of such technology raise significant ethical implications for patient safety and therapeutic relationships. In collaboration with Professor Anita Ho and funded by a British Council Collaborative Development Award, this project explores the legal and regulatory challenges of ensuring that this technology is used effectively and safely.
