A Review of the International Evidence of the Effectiveness of the Use of CCTV in Care Home Settings: A Rapid Evidence Assessment

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The report begins with the rationale for this review which is in response to concerns regarding the quality of care and the potential for abuse in care home settings. It then considers the range of technology used to monitor people within such settings, with particular reference to Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) based technology. The next section focuses on the complex ethical debates relevant to the use of monitoring technology in care home settings and the policies and guidance developed for the use of such technology in Northern Ireland and internationally.

The report then focuses on the 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 provides. The methodology used to conduct the evidence assessment is presented followed by the key findings, including a table summarising all the included studies. The final section of the report considers the possible implications of the current debates and evidence for law, policy, service provision and practice in Northern Ireland.
