Work packages

INTROMAT has seven specific objectives: (1) Establish user involvement in treatment development with the help-seekers, patients, relatives, health personnel, policy makers and health services; (2) Develop monitoring and support systems with continuous adaptive guidance and support based on input from wearables and smartphone carried by the user (ecological momentary assessment); (3) Develop innovative treatment modules that can be used across problems and contexts; (4) Develop the premises for an technology architecture supporting a flexible and modular core clinical process that can be integrated in the health services; (5) Demonstrate the feasibility, validity and clinical efficacy of the treatment technologies of five highly prevalent and burdensome mental health problems; (6) Develop and validate a work-process from clinical needs to clinically tested interventions; (7) Fulfil the innovation potential for industry and the mental health services and other areas of Healthcare.

To reach these goals INTROMAT we have organized the project into six work packages. Please contact the WP leaders or project manager for more information.

About

Since PhD-graduation in November 2011 Nordgreen have been actively involved in scientific publications, grant applications, supervision of students on a master and PhD level and held presentations on national and international conferences in the field of internet-based treatment. Nordgreen is leading a 1-year continued education program in self-help and internet-based treatment and introduced Internet-based treatment in the training of psychologists at the University of Bergen. She has since 2012, as the principle investigator, received funding from different sources (scientific programs, health authorities and innovation programs) of 1.8 million Euro. In addition, a cross-disciplinary team led by Nordgreen received funding from the Norwegian Research Council for a 5 year project of 5.3 million Euro, the total budget for the project is 8.18 million Euro. The common goals of the grant applications and projects have been to develop innovative ways of delivering evidence-based Internet-based treatment. The results from her research have been implemented in routine care in western and eastern Norway in primary and secondary care services (www.emeistring.no). The research projects have been developed in close cooperation with significant national and international research groups. The projects she has chaired have received national and regional awards for innovative use of ICT within the health-setting. Nordgreen was a visiting scholar with Associate professor Lee Ritterbands’ group at the Behavioral Health and Technology, Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia. Nordgreen is an elected member of the eHealth Task Force of the European Federation of Psychological Associations.
