Dr. Virginie Cobigo and her team are working on an innovative transdisciplinary research and development project (WP8.3 PRIV-SENSE). The aim is to study ethical factors that arise during the development, commercialization, diffusion and adoption of a technology, which assists aging persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their caregivers in the safe use of medications. In addition to interviews with relevant stakeholder groups (i.e., healthcare professionals and policy makers) and monitoring data via meeting notes and the researcher’s diaries, this inclusive project engages 6 aging persons with IDD who attended 5 focus groups. During the focus groups, the participants helped the technology developers identify the required features and functionalities of the proposed technology application, and tested the prototype. Currently, data are being analyzed and important insights on the ethical issues related to technology adoption and development for/by aging persons with IDD are expected. A first article was accepted and is to be published in the fall of 2017 in the journal of “Ethics and Behaviour”. It explores privacy protection behaviours and attitudes of aging persons with IDD when using information technologies. This 5-year project is funded by AGE-WELL NCE- a national research network in technology and aging, with a span of 25 universities and research centres across Canada, and more than 80 industry, government, and not-for-profit partners.
