Professor Kevin Daughty

Kevin Doughty is a Visiting Professor in the Digital Transformation of Health and Social Care services at the Institute of Life Sciences at the University of Cumbria. He advises staff on the development of courses in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Social Care.

Kevin’s special interests include the development of personal profiles of potential users of technology, together with the evaluation and testing of new technologies and of product frameworks to improve quality. These feed into new methods of assessment that focus on identifying and addressing the widest possible range of unmet needs using both conventional and lighter touch approaches, especially digital technologies, apps, and worn devices.
