Trust and Technology Terrorism in Medicine: The role of Psychology in the digital transformation of healthcare
The industry is driving rapid global change in health technologies, and the technology cycle far outpaces the healthcare adoption cycle. However, the vision of a safe and effective digital transformation of healthcare requires a multidisciplinary approach with the patient at the centre of design. Health Psychology is a key player in this complex task, providing expertise on user-centred design and guidance on motivators and barriers to behavioural change. A huge gap exists between the ambitions of new technologies and their acceptability and effective use. This talk will outline the key role that health psychology has in this complex task, by providing expertise on user-centred design, to guidance on motivators and barriers to behavioural change.
