Abstract

senior researcher, Digital Imaging Research There are concerns about how cameras in care homes might intrude on residents' and staff privacy but worries about resident abuse must be recognised. This article outlines an ethical way forward and calls for a rethink about cameras that focuses less on their ability to "see" and more on their use as data-gathering tools.
