Stefan Priebe

I currently work at the Unit for Social and Community Psychiatry WHO Collaborating Centre for Mental Health Services Development.

I am working on an NIHR funded project with Professor Stefan Priebe entitled Effective Patient-Clinician Communication in Community Mental Health Care (EPOS).

The project is testing the effectiveness of using a computer-mediated structure for routine meetings between patients with schizophrenia and their care co-ordinator.

Previously I worked on a project with Oxford University and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, investigating how text and email technology can be used by patients with bipolar disorder to self-monitor and manage their mental health.

I also spent a year placement with the Oxford University Department of Education with the Families, Early Learning and Literacy research group where I worked on a range of projects investigating influential factors in healthy child development.

My current research interests are in how everyday technology can facilitate the management of long term health conditions, with a particular interest in how such treatments can be implemented in clinical practice.

I am currently undertaking a systematic review of patients' experiences of using technology to monitor their mental health.
