Health Psychology Using Mobile Devices

We have developed mobile apps for use by patients referred for help with dental anxiety or smoking cessation. The apps, which are currently undergoing clinical validation in Scotland, Sweden, Finland and Japan, provide useful data for designing and monitoring individualised interventions and treatments, and also help the research community by providing longitudinal follow-up data from a wide range of subjects.
