E-health and Technology Research Group

This research group is focused on the impact and implementation of e-health, on patients' use of the internet, and online collaborative learning between patients and professionals. Assessing the impact of e-health usually involves an interdisciplinary approach and we have projects and proposals at the various stages of evaluation from exploratory work, through pilots to randomised trials. We are particularly focused on embedding e-health in the nursing curriculum with our students as ‘agents of change’.
