  • It can be done from a location of your choice
  • Participation in this research study is voluntary

The European Commission has put together an overview of eHealth studies. Reports include areas that cover; impact, legal framework, good practice and more. 

The reports highlight the development of eHealth in its many facets and provides a great background to the recent project proposal led by the Technical University of Delft on developing internet based technology that can be used within OT education, OT practice and research which was mentioned in our March Newsletter.
