Added benefit and acceptability of e-mental health interventions – can it live up to the promise?: Dr Peter Musiat

September 26, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Technology-based interventions for mental disorders (e-mental health) are increasingly offered and have demonstrated efficacy across a wide range of mental health problems. Such interventions are often assumed to have numerous advantages over usual care, such as cost-effectiveness, flexibility for the users, or reduced therapist time. However, these advantages have not been systematically investigated. In addition, research into the acceptability of e-mental health is relatively poor. Whilst numerous studies with information on the acceptability on particular intervention exist, the vast majority of these studies suffer from methodological limitations.

This talk presents the results of two studies: 1. a large systematic review into the putative added and 2. the results of a study into the acceptability of technology-delivered alternatives to face-to-face CBT.

Peter Musiat is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London. Together with Professor Nicholas Tarrier, he heads the Section of Clinical Psychology and E-health.
