Through its projects, the RS1 aims to redefine the system to address health promotion issues and long-term care needs of people living with chronic diseases and their families. This research often involves the use of innovative technologies such as eHealth. Many of our researchers are evaluating innovative Web interventions in their projects, offering great opportunities to improve self-management and quality of care for people living with chronic diseases and their families.
