Project Group eHealth

The project group is involved in activities to survey, monitor, investigate and evaluate eHealth applications as well as in efforts to guarantee the quality of applications and guidelines on proper use of eHealth applications. This work is done in international collaboration between experts and together with other health professions.

Back to all Working groups

The project group on eHealth was set-up in 2015. Its aim was to help deal with the increasing expansion of technology within the professional contexts of psychologist in Europe and across the world, a trend which has only accelerated following the COVID-19 pandemic. Experts from different EFPA member associations therefore aim to help psychologists better understand to the domain and make optimal use of it, while also allowing policy makers and member associations develop sensible strategies for their use.

On this webpage you’ll find an overview of different members, alongside some recent output and deliverables and – if available – planned events of the project group.
