The Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR) is excited to announce our next Meet and Eat Event. The event will feature a presentation by Dr. Tarun Katapally.
The presentation will discuss, “SMART Platform: Mobile Health (mHealth) Approaches in Patient-Oriented Research”
SMART Platform (www.smartstudysask.com) is the first mobile health (mHealth) and citizen science initiative for population health surveillance, integrated knowledge translation, and real-time interventions. From a mHealth perspective, the citizen science approach has been vital to the success of the Platform in terms of recruitment, retention, and compliance of patients. Citizen science is a participatory approach that can range from contributory and collaborative methods (data collection and analysis) to co-creation of knowledge (conceptualization and knowledge translation). SMART Platform is based on an evidence-based framework that integrates citizen science, community-based participatory research, and systems science through ubiquitous tools to conduct population health research in the digital age—SMART Framework. This presentation will discuss the immense potential as well as the challenges of utilizing mHealth approaches in patient-oriented research.
12:00-12:45 Presentation and Discussion
12:45-1:30 Lunch and Open Networking
The presentation and discussion will be streamed live via Zoom for those who are unable to attend in person.
SCPOR Meet and Eat Events are held monthly and focus on various topics in Patient-Oriented Research (POR). The events provide an opportunity to share knowledge gained through patient-oriented research and to highlight the work of our research teams. In-person attendees will also have the opportunity to network and make new connections with patient and family advisors, researchers, students, clinicians, and decision makers following the presentation.
