KI Lifestyle4Health network seminar #20 - speaker: Nuhamin Gebrewold Petros
E-health tools offer patients a convenient and readily available platform for receiving information, self-monitoring various aspects of their health, such as physical activity and diet, and receiving personalized feedback. In our upcoming seminar, Ph.D. student Nuhamin Petros will present her work on the NEVERMIND system, an eHealth tool designed to assist patients with somatic illnesses in managing their mental health. Nuhamin's presentation will focus on the results of a randomized controlled trial conducted to evaluate the main effects of the NEVERMIND system in a clinical sample of patients. In addition to the discussion of the trial outcomes, Nuhamin will share her findings from her Ph.D. project, which centers on assessing the usability and acceptability of the NEVERMIND system.
