Add to Calendar September 30, 2020 4:00 pm September 30, 2020 5:30 pm Europe/Copenhagen Making digital work for older citizens: How can we learn from the pandemic

5 years into the journey towards realising the SDGs let’s pause to consider how we are promoting health AND wellbeing as we have set forth to do. Putting the perspectives, values, wishes and needs of senior citizens at the center of health care delivery is key to ensuring health and wellbeing, not least for senior citizens.

COVID-19 presents a disproportionate risk to the health and well-being of older people. Many live alone and many are less digitally savvy and are thus at risk of losing vital interaction during isolation.

The pandemic also presents an opportunity to “restart” and reshape health and social care in a more inclusive, compassionate way that employs technology solutions accessible to all.

Guided by the promise of the SDG 2030 Agenda to Leave No One Behind, this panel discussion will share insights, ideas and recommendations for improving the wellbeing of older adults across the globe, with a focus on the opportunities and challenges created by digitalisation.

The panel gathers specialists and practitioners in health care from three different countries: Denmark, Mexico and the United Kingdom that will bring perspectives and insights from different parts of the health care system, from research to interventions and service design.

Who should join:
• Researchers and practitioners in health and social care focused on the ageing
• Digital and technology specialists with an interest in product development and service design for seniors and vulnerable groups
• Foundations, agencies and NGOs with an interest in exploring digital solutions for health and wellbeing at all ages
• Students in medical sciences, public health and social sciences.
