The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that ‘traditional’ face-to-face social care practices have had to fundamentally change, leading to the rapid acceleration of digitised social care.

While digital technology can function as an ‘enabler’ to achieve the core objectives of adult social care, such as in relation to inclusion, co-production, self-determination, and safeguarding, it can also present ethical and practice challenges and lead to uncertainty in practice. This seminar series will use the recent outbreak as starting point, to reflect upon and explore the challenges and opportunities of ‘virtual’ relationships-based practice with adults in receipt of services.

The seminar series will also consider digital social care through the lenses of pre, during, and post-COVID-19 in order to support delegates to reflect upon the ethical, moral and practice considerations of digital social work. It will consider how practitioners can manage and respond to the risks and uncertainties of working online as well as to build their skills, understanding and confidence of good ethical practice when using digital technologies in adult social care practice.

Aimed at: Frontline practitioners, social workers, team leaders, people accessing services and their families, carers and senior practitioners.
