Developing a mechanism to deploy digital tools aimed at lifestyle modification in primary care

Project Participants

Status: Completed


Evaluate the uptake and effectiveness of existing digital tools aimed at lifestyle modifications, specifically weight control.

Project objective

This project will trial two digital tools, the Hunger app© and the FutureMe app©, aimed at triggering modifiable lifestyle change and to collect data on engagement with the tools and attempts at weight management.

Lifestyle modification and weight control are a priority in Australia with over 60-80 percent of the population classified as overweight or obese. Currently in healthcare, weight management protocols are known to be ineffective or only marginally effective.
