Use of CCTV in Care Home Settings

DRN members, Dr Paul Best and Professor Gavin Davidson have co-authored A Review of the International Evidence of the Effectiveness of the Use of CCTV in Care Home Settings funded by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. The report provides a rapid evidence assessment of the research on the effectiveness of the use of CCTV in care home settings for service users, carers/families and service providers and considers the complex ethical debates relevant to the use of monitoring technology in such settings. The possible implications of the current debates and evidence for law, policy, service provision and practice in Northern Ireland are also addressed. You can access the report here
