Commons Care, MakerNurse and Care Data Coops
You might be interested to take a look at a recently published book in which some of our libraries work is mentioned: Taking Power Back - it explores the scope to 'common' local government in England (which is part-responsible for 'care services' here). You might also be interested to take a look at the MakerHealth and MakerNurse project in the United States. Otherwise, a couple of thoughts from me:
1) I am currently tasked w/ exploring the maker angle re care on behalf a number of local authorities in England, so I'd really welcome being kept up to date about anything that emerges around that strand of the project; and
2) I wonder whether some other work I'm exploring around an #IoT4communities, wearable loans and Library Data Coops might also 'fit' w/ this project in some way - I'll keep you posted as and when I conjure anything of interest, but all thoughts/suggestions in the interim would be appreciated.
