TAS for Health – Call for Participants

The “TAS for Health” project is exploring attitudes towards the use of technology in health and wellbeing decision-making in the home, across users including patients, carers, and family members. We are particularly interested in how use relates to shared values such as trust, self-efficacy, and privacy.

We are currently recruiting for a series of workshops, which will explore how people currently use technology to support their own health and wellbeing, and that of others, and how they may do so in the future. We are looking for four groups of people:

  • People who have made use of technology such as apps or smart devices to support their health and wellbeing during lockdown.
  • People who have experience caring for or living with others with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, dementia, or stroke, with or without technological support.
  • People who have multiple sclerosis.
  • People who have had a stroke.

If you fit into any of these groups, we’d like to invite you to take part in our online workshops, in which we will discuss the use of technology in healthcare decision-making. It will not be necessary for you to discuss your medical history, or that of others, and you are under no obligation to disclose any information you do not want to. Workshops will last around 2 hours and will take place online, with adjustments to be made depending on participant needs. You will receive a £20 shopping voucher for contributing to the study.

Workshops will take place in October and November 2021, with dates to be confirmed once we have an idea of participant availability.
