The Foundation for Assistive Technology (FAST) is running a survey to evaluate education and training for installers of telecare and telehealth technologies In the UK. There are two parts – one for installers themselves – go here – and one for commissioners of such services – go here. The deadline for survey responses is 15th September 2010.
There is currently no consensus on the training and service planning that is required to deliver an effective installation and the survey will help FAST assess how installers are accommodating more complex, integrated sensor and communication systems within their working practice.
If you can publicise the survey amongst its target response group, please do so, and/or contact Pat Sweet, researcher at FAST (020 7264 895) for information.
