Illness Management and Recovery App (IMRapp)
iPad application for Illness Management and Recovery (IMRapp)
Educating the mental health workforce in evidence-based practices can be especially challenging in low-income and rural areas, where access to training and high-speed technologies may be limited. Practitioners not only need up-to-date materials, but also clinical consultation and feedback on how evidence-based teaching strategies should be used in client sessions. In collaboration with a team of Swedish developers, we are working to create an English language iPad application to train and supervise practitioners in IMR. We will pilot this intervention in Summer 2016 with two sites, where we will test the feasibility and tolerability of the iPad application with practitioners who are trained in IMR and versed in using iPads in their work.
