Katie Bennett

Deputy Team Manager, Herts Valleys Post Hospital Review Team (as of 13th June)

Hertfordshire County Council

I have worked at Hertfordshire County Council for many years as a social worker most recently moving to a post hospital review team.  I hold strong values of enablement and collaborative care planning and have first-hand experience utilising technology to support independence of individuals in the community. With social care increasingly moving towards a focus on use of technology it is important to consider the ethical implications of this. I consider this Research in Practice topic to be asking key questions regarding the use of technology, and an opportunity to collate service user feedback regarding this.
