Nocturnal Scratch: A study bringing patient input into development of novel digital measures
September 20, 2023
As a result of successful DiMe collaboration, we have published the results of a mixed methods study that interviewed and surveyed patients with atopic dermatitis. The publication titled “A patient-centered conceptual model of nocturnal scratch and its impact in atopic dermatitis: A mixed-methods study supporting the development of novel digital measurements” is providing insights into everyday patient experience with atopic dermatitis.
Apart from signs, symptoms and effects on everyday life, we explored patients’ attitudes towards evaluation of nocturnal scratching as well as use of digital tools for its measurement. These results can further serve as a basis for development of patient-centered clinical outcome assessments that leverage digital health technologies (DHTs).
