Our Community Care Smart Assistive Technology Collaborative Platform is now live!

Community Resourcing has been funded by the Queensland Government Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to provide an online collaborative space for initially 1000 Community Care providers but with an eye on the world.

This platform is available to Community Care providers and provides a space to collaborate, learn and access resources and expertise. The focus on local, national and international community care practices and experiences with incorporating Smart Assistive Technology in service provision will ensure participants are able to access leading edge and contemporary information.

 

The purpose of this On Line Collaborative is:

 

  • To promote the use of assistive technologies in service provision through knowledge sharing and collaboration

  • To raise awareness of the various roles of Smart Assistive Technology and its applicability in community care service provision  

  • To provide practical information on how Smart Assistive Technology can be incorporated into service delivery and business models

  • To encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing

  • To gain an understanding of Service Providers and gauge their attitudes towards Smart Assistive Technologies

  • And importantly, identify barriers to uptake of Smart Assistive Technology service delivery

 

Key Features Include: Resources, Videos, Scheduled live webinars, Polls, Blogs, Forums, Useful Links, Tips, News, and opportunities to share and link with local and international experts, service providers, carers, our Expert Reference Groups and like-minded individuals.

 

A Project Expert Reference Committee has been appointed. This Committee brings together a range of service providers, researchers, carers and clients, academics and interested individuals in the role of Smart Assistive Technology in community service provision.

 

Official Launch Event 8 September; our event to officially launch the Community Care Smart Assistive Technology Collaborative Platform, was held in Brisbane, at The Royal International Convention Centre. Ms Nikki Boyd, MP Member for Pine Rivers, represented the Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, to attend and launch the collaboration. As well as launching the Platform to the Queensland Community Care Service delivery sector, our event engaged key decisions makers and political representatives to highlight the importance of the platform and to promote its development.
