Technology and caregiving

We understand the relationship between technology and care with a view to designing and implementing technological support tools for the care process that fit the needs, expectations, and possibilities of the care dyad.


a. Characterize, from the position of the dyad, the current forms of use of technology in care, the expectations associated with such use, the criteria that determine good practices in the use of technology, and the main needs for technological support in the process of care.

b. Design, test and implement technological tools to support the care process, taking into account the expectations, needs, and good practices identified.

c. Generate a Manual on Good Practices for the use of technology in care according to the characteristics of the dyad, expected results, and main users.
