We met with social workers in Cardiff and talked about the process of discharging older adults from hospital in Cardiff and Swansea. We plan to meet with them again and work with them to better understand how the discharge process works and how we might support similar processes through STRETCH. We also talked about recruiting new participants in Wales for the STRETCH pilot studies (privacy study in Milton Keynes, and survey on motivations for informally supporting older people).
We also met with Dmitri Katz who is a PhD student researching how technology can help diabetes management. This discussion gave us more insight about the technologies used in diabetes management and how it can compliment our research.
