'Decision making by the Children's Panel' and 'Digitising the Neighbourhood'
Held by Judy Warbuton and Cate Pemble (respectively)
'Decision making by the Children's Panel' (Judy Warbuton)
This talk will be a brief introduction to Judy’s research project which will look at the effectiveness of the Children’s Hearing System in making decisions about the futures of vulnerable children in Scotland. The research seeks to understand the global and Scottish context in which Children’s Hearings make decisions and, using research and theory on decision-making and judgement, to examine how individual Panel Member’s actually make decisions.
'Digitising the Neighbourhood' (Catherine Pemble)
Catherine will present the outline for her forthcoming research project which focuses on the identification of the barriers and challenges which can make it difficult for a person with dementia to leave their home and access their community. Catherine will give a brief overview of the theoretical perspectives that have guided her research thus far, and discuss the three studies she plans to undertake.
