Thesis title: Effectiveness of Health Apps and Their Potential in Enhancing Self-Management in Primary Care

My research explores the potential of smartphone health apps in improving effectiveness of behaviour change interventions, self-management of chronic conditions, healthcare accessibility and personalization.

I conducted an overview of the body of evidence behind health apps and their availabilities, and identified the gaps in research, and presented my work at the 2016 Gold Coast Health and Medical Research conference and Australian Society for Medical Research Annual Scientific Meeting.

The next stages of my project are set to investigate the barriers and facilitators of prescribing health apps in primary care settings from both the doctors’ and the patients’ perspective.

I am a recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) scholarship, and a winner of People’s Choice award of Bond University’s 3 Minute Thesis competition.
