Digital Health for parents facing language and cultural access barriers to the Swiss health system

At a glance


The goal of this project is the systematic and evidence based development of digital health care services for expecting parents and parents of infants, who are disadvantaged in the health care context of maternity care, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and pediatric care, because of language or cultural barriers.

As a reference point for the development of digitally based health care, we will use the Model for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions by Craig et al (2008). These complex interventions comprise several mutually dependent and interacting measures and components, which are developed systematically, with the help of theoretical analyses and preliminary studies.

With this research project, we aim to create a basis for the development of complex interventions, which would increase the health literacy of expecting parents, or parents of infants.
