In Care at a Distance: On the Closeness of Technology the autor demonstrates that actual care practices employing telecare do not resemble the hopes of the industry and policy makers, nor the nightmares of ethicists. The detailed ethnographic studies of pioneering telecare practices show how nurses and patients re-shape care when they start using telecare devices. The book frames urgent questions about the future of telecare and the ways in which innovative care practices can be built on facts rather than hopes, hypes or nightmares.
