This workshop was comprised of presentations exploring the use of new technologies and methods for capturing health-related data in longitudinal studies. The workshop was hosted by CLOSER.
Measuring health-related data in longitudinal studies can be a difficult task.
However, the recent development of innovative new techniques, such as the passive detection of health behaviours like smoking with wearable devices, means we will soon be able to measure more detailed and accurate data, in less invasive ways than has previously been possible.
This full-day workshop explored and discussed the use of these new technologies and methods for capturing health-related data in longitudinal studies.
Delegates heard experiences of techniques already in use in the CLOSER’s consortium of studies, and from researchers developing new approaches to capturing a variety of health data from participants’ in their day-to-day lives. There was also the opportunity to discuss issues related to these new techniques, and ideas and requirements for future developments within this field.
