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.

ETUSAIS? Mon nouveau projet sur la littératie en santé mentale des étudiants étrangers

ETUSAIS? ETUdiants étrangers : Services Aide et Information sur la Santé mentale

Les étudiants étrangers sont confrontés à plusieurs difficultés : un isolement important, des ressources souvent limitées, une grande complexité du parcours administratif. L’ensemble de ces difficultés peut engendrer un état de stress pouvant être majeur et allant parfois jusqu’à une dégradation de leur état psychologique.

Le projet ETUSAIS? s’adresse aux étudiants étrangers résidant dans les cités universitaires de la métropole de Bordeaux. Avec une approche à la fois exploratoire et interventionnelle, une enquête de terrain de porte à porte sera menée afin d’évaluer chez les étudiants étrangers les niveaux de connaissances sur la santé mentale et sur les services à leurs disposition. Chaque participant se verra remettre un flyer anglais/français avec les indications des services à leur disposition.

The servi-Share project: first published article

Bordeaux, February 2017

figure-2

I won in December 2015 a 50K euros project for the creation of a smartphone application geolocalising students health facilities in Bordeaux (project “servi-Share”).
Nested in the i-Share cohort its aim was to implement a web-based intervention aimed to facilitate students’ access to real-world healthcare services. The production of the web-application consisted of two main processes: co-creation and process evaluation involving academic staff, industry web-developers and two target stakeholder groups, i.e. university students and real-world healthcare services providers. The study used mixed qualitative and quantitative methods.
servi-Share was funded by AVIESAN, ITMO Santé Publique, ITMO Nouvelles technologies pour la santé, Call on “Objets connectés”.
Duration: 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016.

The first article on this project is available! Here it is on Research Protocols JMIR
