What kind of a problem is loneliness? Studying technology to understand policy concerns
No booking necessary
This talk by Dr Gemma Hughes is intended to show how problems, such as loneliness, can be understood and researched in multiple ways.

By outlining the methodology of the research programme Virtual Presence, and explaining the qualitative methods used to study the adoption of telepresence technologies designed to prevent loneliness, Dr Hughes will argue for the importance of interpretive approaches in health research.
