ECRA Member Franziska von Mandelsloh:
The aim of the study is A) to investigate effectiveness of mHealth technology for improving health for people of an advanced age in the community setting. A systematic review is used to examine the extent to which there is sufficient evidence for a causal relationship between the use of mHealth technology and health-related outcomes in the community setting for currently available mHealth models/approaches. Based on this, B) a concept for an intervention is to be developed and C) implemented as a pilot intervention to assess the feasibility in a specific neighborhood of Hamburg (the neighborhood is not fixed yet). The pilot intervention is D) evaluated according to the Standards of DGEval (German Society for Evaluation, 2016).
With such a multimodal intervention, as outlined above, the failure of a single component can jeopardize the achievement of the intended goal. Typically, the interplay of reciprocally linked components is the basis for a successful multimodal intervention. In order to account for this, the creation of a complex intervention is planned.
