Project description

The inTaCT project is a critical enquiry that focuses on inequalities in telehealth and care technologies to identify and creatively challenge cultural (e.g. language/rituals/socio economic) barriers to adoption.

The research investigates how technology (in general) is used by people in their every day lives how it is and can be used to support their health and wellbeing. The project will explore, identify and promote participatory approaches and ways of empowering citizens, consumers in the design and creation of products and services, to build resilience and to help generate community ownership of health issues.
