In this paper we describe the TOPS project, which aims to generate digital engagement tools to aid personal and social interaction between older adults and their care providers. TOPS focuses specifically on rural older adults who experience chronic pain – this responds to research priorities and to gaps identified in the health, social and technological literature. We outline the project’s methods, strategy for technology design and present feedback from initial scoping research.
