Medical Trust Beyond Clinical Walls is an NWO-funded research project at Eindhoven University of Technology, in collaboration with and co-funded by Mobihealth B.V. and Sananet Care B.V. The purpose of this project is to investigate how patients with chronic diseases establish trust in forms of treatment and monitoring that involve telecare, the use of technology at home in interaction with online systems. Furthermore, the project aims to evaluate when this trust is well-grounded, and to develop guidelines for the responsible deployment and further innovation of telecare services with an eye on promoting reasonable patient trust, autonomy, and self-management (see the about page for a further description of this project).
The programme for our workshop Autonomous Agency, Health Promotion, and Technology Design is as follows:
