RADAR-CNS (www.radar-cns.org) is investigating the use of remote measuring technologies (RMT) in provision of health and social care. We are specifically investigating their use in the care of people with one or more of the following conditions

- epilepsy

- multiple sclerosis (MS)

- depression

We are examining how commercially available lifestyle devices, like FitBits, can be used to monitor and predict changes in a range of clinically relevant factors e.g.  in activity, mobility, mood, seizure frequency. The information collected by the devices could be useful for patients and their healthcare team and may help find ways of improving treatment. 

This survey investigates healthcare professional views and experiences of RMT and mHealth more generally. This will contribute to our understanding of how these technologies impact clinical pathways and decision points from the perspective of the healthcare professionals. 

If you are a healthcare professional providing care for people living with epilepsy/ MS/depression, we would like to have your thoughts about these devices.

We would be grateful if you would complete this questionnaire. We are just looking for your opinions, we are not asking you to take part in any trials.

The survey should take approx 10min of your time. 

As a thank you for your time, we will donate £1 to a relevant charity for every complete questionnaire we receive. At the end of the questionnaire you will be provided with the choice of three charities to donate to. 

Thank you very much for your help!
