2nd Behaviour Change Conference: Digital Health and Wellbeing UCL Centre for Behaviour Change. Venue: Senate House, London Feb.24
A representative of EHFF attended this very instructive meeting in London, attracted by the range of presentations that are of interest because of their connections with ongoing projects that EHFF is involved with. The full programme for the meeting is here
Here are a number of abstracts from the live presentations with both academic references and contact emails for the key presenters.
Firstly an overview of literature related to professional behaviour change using technological supports from Chris Keyworth of Manchester University. Next, a fascinating App. development for balance, which has implications for the A3 Action area of the EIP (Frailty) as well as being a good example of co-design, from Shruti Grover of the Royal College of Arts .
Thirdly, a review of self-monitoring technologies and behaviour change in self-management of long term conditions from Heather Morgan of Aberdeen University. Fourth, an on-line self-management programme for Diabetes Type 2 presented by Kingshuk Pal from UCL and finally, an insight into an ongoing H2020 project on cardiac rehabilitation looking at barriers and motivators for engagement in technology, both from patient and professional stand-point. This was from one of the Ireland partners, presented by Deirdre Walsh (Dublin City University). The link to the main website of the H2020 project is: www.pathway2health.eu
