How digital interventions influence our health-related behaviours?

4:00pm-4:30pm on Saturday 3 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Digital interventions, such as sms text messaging, the use of smartphone apps, wearables, and websites, are accessible, fully automated, inexpensive to deliver, and is one way to provide advice and support about health care. Evidence from the literature suggest that digital health interventions are effective at changing behaviours related to health, like taking medications, physical activity and diet. Positive changes to these health-related behaviours have been associated with improvements in clinical indicators and reduction in morbidities and mortality.  

This event will aim to provide an overview of the existing evidence about whether and how digital health interventions impact on our health-related behaviours and improve health indicators. It will also provide evidence from randomised controlled trials implemented in primary care during the four years. It will describe to what extent and how the usage of such interventions support patients’ behaviour change and clinical outcomes.
