RADAR-CNS Webinar: “The impact of data from smartphone apps and wearable devices on clinical practice: Survey”

The RADAR-CNS project invites you to attend the second webinar on the impact of data from smartphone apps and wearable devices on clinical practice which is part of a series focused on their published academic papers or results.

The second RADAR-CNS online seminar, on Tuesday 13 April 2021, 12.00pm-12.45pm (BST), will focus on the results from a large-scale survey of healthcare professionals working in the care of people with MS, epilepsy or depression.

The seminar will present the experiences of clinicians in relation to their use of smartphone apps and their patients’ use of remote measurement technology.

The seminar will also present healthcare professionals’ views on the impact of RMT data on their work, and consider the implications of this for the development of new platforms such that being developed in the RADAR-CNS project.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.

About the speaker

Dr Jake Andrews is a post-doctoral Research Fellow working on RADAR-CNS  Work Package 9, looking at how the RADAR-CNS remote measurement technologies (RMT) system could be integrated into clinical pathways. He’s based at University of Nottingham in the UK.

His work identifies the requirements of clinical stakeholders (such as healthcare professionals, managers, commissioners and payers) for integrating remote measurement technologies into care pathways for depression, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis (MS) in different European healthcare systems.
