The app tät
We would like to examine the treatment effects obtained via the booklet in various contexts; in part when the booklet is distributed by midwives, in part when it is downloaded directly from us via the Internet. We would also like to know the age, education, and type of residential location of those who use the booklet, and the extent of the difficulties they have experienced. The study has been approved by the research ethics committee at Umeå (Ref. no. 2015-79-32M)
The Internet programme
In order to assess the Internet-based treatment in everyday clinical practice we are now ”adapting” the programme to a technically advanced platform in collaboration with the Department of Computing Science at Umeå University.
The platform, which is known as ACKTUS (Activity-Centered Modeling of Knowledge and Interaction Tailored to users), allows the creation of unique, individually tailored solutions for each participant.
We will examine how the programme is used and what effects it has when used in different clinical contexts and in different languages. An international collaboration has been initiated. The programme has been developed on the new platform and the study will be completed during autumn 2017.
