SMART4MD enabled tablets

600 tablets will be loaded with SMART4MD and locked to avoid improper use. The tablet will be delivered to the clinical partners, each partner receiving enough tablets to distribute to 50% of the local volunteers.

Case studies

These will be easily accessible documents, presenting the pilot and results in each country to non-experts (e.g. policy makers, general public). Each case study will be written in the national language of the country of the pilot (English, Flemish, French, Spanish, Czech and Swedish) and will avoid using expert terminology or jargon. Each case study will refer to a scientific publication where additional details are presented; each case study will also offer local contact details for any enquiries.

SMART4MD project website

The core project website. used for dissemination of project results and all other public deliverables.

Scientific publications

6 papers will be published to describe the results of the pilots on a national and European levels. Target journals include: Actas Españolas de Psiquiatria (Spanish pilot), British Medical Journal (UK pilot), Lékař a Technika (Czech pilot), Acta Clinica Belgica (Belgian pilot), Scandinavian Journal of Public Health (Swedish pilot) and Lancet (combined data from all pilots). For the benefit of project management, this deliverable will be considered complete when all manuscripts have been submitted to peer review in the relevant journals.

Ethics approval

We will secure formal ethics approval in each country where we will run a pilot, viz. UK, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and Czech Republic. The deliverable will comprise: - Copies of the offical ethical approval letters from the Competent Authority in each country; - Copies of ethical approvals for the collection of personal data by the competent University Data Protection Officer or National Data Protection authority in each country.
