Robots have potential to provide assistance to healthcare providers in daily caregiving tasks. The healthcare providers’ acceptance of assistive robots will mediate the success or failure of implementation of robotic systems in care settings. It is essential to understand why and how providers would accept implementation of a robot in their daily work routines. We identified caregiving tasks with which healthcare providers would or would not accept assistance from a personal robot (Willow Garage’s PR2). We also explored preferences for human or robot assistance. The healthcare providers we interviewed were quite open to the idea of receiving robot assistance for certain tasks.

Abstract

Robots have potential to provide assistance to healthcare providers in daily caregiving tasks. The healthcare providers’ acceptance of assistive robots will mediate the success or failure of implementation of robotic systems in care settings. It is essential to understand why and how providers would accept implementation of a robot in their daily work routines. We identified caregiving tasks with which healthcare providers would or would not accept assistance from a personal robot (Willow Garage’s PR2). We also explored preferences for human or robot assistance. The healthcare providers we interviewed were quite open to the idea of receiving robot assistance for certain tasks.
