This webinar introduces ethical issues surrounding using robots for in-person and remote healthcare delivery, including healthcare provided in hospitals, long-term care facilities, doctors’ offices, and other therapeutic settings. As we identify and examine ethical issues, we will consider the impact of using robots on various stakeholders, including patients, patients’ family members and guardians, healthcare workers, and non-clinical staff. We will focus on the impact of human-robot interaction (HRI) on people’s relationships with robots and other humans. The webinar also analyzes ethical decisions about the design and use of robots used in healthcare settings.
