Internet delivered interventions
Interested in creating and/or evaluating an Internet delivered intervention? The eHealth Core Facility provides support for development, content design, evaluation and implementation of your online intervention.
Why use the eHealth Core Facility for your online intervention study?
Internet delivered interventions, also known as online treatment or eTherapy, are treatment programs that are delivered to a participant over the Internet. Internet delivered cognitive-behavioral therapy has existed for somewhat 20 years and has been developed and tested for a wide variety of psychiatric and somatic conditions. Due to easy access and low cost, Internet delivered therapy offers an attractive alternative to traditionally delivered therapy for improving health.
How can we help you?
The eHealth Core Facility offers an easy and safe way to develop and test the behavior intervention of your choice. We have experience in designing online interventions as well as in usability testing and treatment evaluation. By offering a platform for creating and testing online treatment programs, BASS, we provide the structure you need to create a user-friendly intervention that is easy to administrate and maintain. BASS offers the possibility to enter multiple types of self-help material (e.g., texts, audio files, worksheets and homework assignments), which are then combined into treatment modules, with flexibility for individual participants within a treatment program. In BASS, the therapist/guide can interact with participants by answering questions, provide feedback on homework assignments and offer support and encouragement. A supervision function allows for continuous monitoring of guides/therapists, allowing a safe guiding of students by experienced professionals within the field. In summary, BASS is designed to be flexible and permit a variety of functions to suit the need of different users.
