The implementation of these studies is crucial for documenting the feasibility, acceptance and effectiveness of digital psychological interventions, and will contribute to future innovation and value creation in the form of research-based and quality-assured programs, health apps, and scientific publications. The projects use the “Person-Based Approach” (PBA) as a framework. PBA integrates quantitative and qualitative data on relevant health issues and ensures high end-user involvement in the development of digital interventions.

The work is carried out in collaboration with: Bergen Municipality, eMeistring Clinic in Helse Bergen, Helse i Hardanger, CheckWare AS, YouWell AS, LifeKeys AS.
