ECRA Member Franziska von Mandelsloh:
“Rarely or not at all do current mHealth approaches in community-based settings focus on people of an advanced age or their family members. This is where my doctoral research project comes in.”
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.
