‘Manage Your Health’ App developed for long-term conditions

To help manage long term conditions, Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Group and the School of Pharmacy at Keele University have developed an application to support patients manage their condition.

Using computer generated characters, interactive quizzes and information resources; the app updates with content designed to help patients with asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and diabetes with additional conditions to follow.

The app can be used on android or apple devices, to answer commonly asked questions set by patients and answered by our clinical group. It uses computer-generated characters to demonstrate key points to help manage your condition, such as effective inhaler technique.

If you are interested is being part of our research, we are looking for patients with long-term conditions to use the new app (both children and adults) and complete a pre and post questionnaire on their experience.
