Course on DIGITAL HEALTH COMMUNICATION

Registrations are open for our two-day course on Digital Health Communication.

This course will help you understand how to communicate health research in the digital environment using various digital tools. From online scientific publication to data visualization and digital storytelling, you will acquire in-depth knowledge on existing opportunities to disseminate your scientific work.

This course is the result of the fruitful collaboration with the three other instructors:

Rachid SALMI, MD, PhD – Professor of Public Health (University of Bordeaux)

Lise MONNERAUD, PhD – Project Manager (University of Bordeaux)

Will STAHL-TIMMINS, PhD – Interactive Data Graphics Designer (The British Medical Journal)

Mental health-related digital use by university students: a systematic review.

The internet and new technologies are widely used by students and represent a significant resource to them for mental health information and support.

But are they really using it? And how?

We conducted a systematic review to summarize and critique studies of mental health-related digital use (including purposes, advantages, and barriers) by students worldwide, in order to support the implementation of future digital mental health interventions targeting university students.

Thanks Aine Horgan for our long-lasting collaboration!

And thanks to Emmanuelle Floch Galaud and Mélanie Plazy for helping us with the systematic review methodology.

Three of the co-authors of this article are Institut de santé publique, d’épidémiologie et de développement (ISPED) students (projet tutoré).

QUALIF MCF 71e SECTION

Je partage mon dossier de qualification dans la 71ème section (Sciences de l’Information et de la Communication), avec le souhait de fournir une trame à ceux qui sont en train de démarrer cette aventure vers la titularisation !

Bon courage à tous ceux qui vont envoyer leurs candidatures pour des postes de Maître de Conférences. C’est un parcours long, parfois très dur, mais je suis convaincue que la méritocratie a toujours le dernier mot !

J’en profite pour remercier encore Nathalie Pinède qui m’a accompagnée tout au long de la préparation de mon dossier. Ma qualification est le fruit de la collaboration avec le MICA dirigé par Alain Kiyindou et Cécile Croce et plus particulièrement de l’axe E3D coordonné par Franck Cormerais.

Littératie digitale en santé mentale : une nouvelle publication

136-les_etudiants_internet_et_la_sante_mentale_714_1Les technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) font partie intégrante de la vie quotidienne des jeunes adultes et particulièrement des étudiants inscrits dans l’enseignement supérieur qui les utilisent largement dans le cadre de leurs études.

En France, la quasi-totalité des 15-30 ans sont des internautes et la moitié d’entre eux ont utilisé Internet au moins une fois dans les douze derniers mois pour rechercher des informations ou des conseils sur la santé en général. Cependant, peu d’études ont porté sur les motivations, les compétences et l’utilisation d’Internet concernant les informations sur la santé mentale chez les étudiants.

Ainsi, nous avons réalisé l’étude Se-SaMe-Jeunes avec l’objectif d’examiner comment les étudiants accèdent, comprennent, évaluent et appliquent l’information en santé mentale via les TIC. Dans le cadre de la littératie digitale en santé mentale, nous avons effectué une recherche exploratoire de type qualitatif auprès d’étudiants de l’université de Bordeaux pendant l’année universitaire 2017/2018.

L’analyse de 21 entretiens semi-directifs a permis de relever que les étudiants ne savent pas réellement où s’orienter pour se renseigner en ligne sur la santé mentale. Bien qu’accoutumés aux nouvelles technologies, ils se méfient beaucoup de la qualité des informations trouvées sur Internet et jugent les sites officiels de santé trop complexes.

Dans le but ultime d’améliorer le bien-être psychique des étudiants, il devient donc nécessaire de développer leur littératie digitale de santé mentale en proposant des formations et des outils numériques de qualité au sein des campus universitaires.

Design Thinking: does it work in research?

Two new publications from my research activities at the Bordeaux Population Health research center. Participatory research approaches and co-creation are in the limelight. Is design thinking good or bad for researchers and study participants?

First article from the Se-SaMe-Jeunes project

9131-180450-1-SPSe-SaMe-Jeunes (Services et e-Santé Mentale des Jeunes / Services and eHealth for young people’s mental health) is a mixed-methods research project aimed to understand the current digital health use and expectations of students to implement effective digital health strategies addressed to them.

This project was financed by IReSP (Institut de Recherche en Santé Publique-Research Institute in Public Health), call “Services de Santé-Health Services,” 2016.

We collected quantitative data from 507 university students in the city of Bordeaux, France, and are transcribing about 25 semi-structured interviews.

The first article from Se-SaMe-Jeunes has been published in JMIR mHealth and uHealth, and concerns the quantitative face-to-face questionnaire.

We found that university students are largely using the internet for health information seeking, but using less mobile health apps and very few wearable devices. Our data suggest that digital health has the potential for improving health and well-being at the university, especially if digital health interventions take into account students’ profiles, interests, and needs.

 

 

 

Digital Public Health – Graduate Program

logo

The Digital Public Health Graduate Program, directed by Pr. Rodolphe Thiébaut, is a project conceived by the Bordeaux Population Health research center (BPH) and the Bordeaux School of Public Health (ISPED) and awarded by the third French Program on Investments for the Future (Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir, PIA3). The project relies on numerous academic and industrial partners concerned by digital health, and is open for international collaborations.

The Digital Public Health Graduate Program includes the creation of a new Master of Science (MSc) embedded in the Master programmes of ISPED, a Doctoral Program (PhD) open to students from all disciplines, and a novel professional certification (DU) program on connected devices and e-Health which responds to needs of capacity building in the field as articulated by regional and international private companies.

The teaching programs are built on the digital innovation brought by big data and connected devices for public health, as well as on the enormous current need to train students and staff in this emerging domain through a modular and multidisciplinary teaching approach. Innovative training methodologies based on real-life projects and data-centered seminars are employed to foster collaborative problem solving, project management and dissemination skills. All courses are delivered in English.

Given the international influence of the researches undertaken at BPH and of the innovative teaching vision of the ISPED, the Digital Public Health Graduate Program has the potential to turn into an international leader center on training and research in the field of digital public health. Graduates from this program will be highly employable data chief officers and future experts and leaders of the digital public health domain.
