Investigating the Promise of mHealth for Complementary and Integrative Health

Wednesday, December 9, 2020
12:00 pm ET/11:00 am CT/9:00 am PT
Presented by Lanay Mudd, PhD, Pam Jeter, PhD, Inbal Naham-Shani, PhD, Christopher Cox, MD, Judith Gordon, PhD and Jennifer Huberty, PhD

OVERVIEW:

Increasingly, researchers are incorporating mobile health (mHealth) technologies to remotely deliver interventions, including mindfulness, yoga, guided imagery, and other complementary and integrative health interventions. These mHealth and remotely delivered interventions may utilize telephone, mobile apps, video, web-based platforms, wearable devices and other modern technologies. The rapid expansion of mHealth technologies makes it possible to transmit participant data digitally from remote areas to centrally based researchers and interventionists, deliver feedback, and capture all interactions in a database.

The use of mHealth and remotely delivered interventions has the potential to increase the reach and access of evidence-based complementary and integrative health interventions to harder to reach populations. Many commercially available approaches already exist to facilitate scalability. However, rigorously designed research is needed to test the usefulness and safety of these approaches.  In this discussion session, panelists will briefly present their experiences conducting research with complementary and integrative health interventions utilizing a variety of mHealth formats, including online video, mobile app, and telephone-based approaches.

The moderator will guide a panel discussion on pros and cons of different mHealth approaches, utilizing commercially available products vs. creating your own, and fully remotely delivered intervention designs vs. hybrid in-person and remote designs. Research design options and funding opportunities to support research on mHealth and remotely delivered complementary and integrative health research will also be discussed.
