In the forthcoming months, the project activities will concentrate on preparing and operating 4 parallel large scale pilots and evaluating the results derived from the interaction of the defined target groups with the platform.
At first, a preliminary usability study will be performed, starting at the end of January 2017, in order to improve the platform for the pilot phase. During the usability study, 20 to 40 dyads in Italy, Spain, UK and France will be provided with access to the CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD platform and they will be guided how to use it. The dyads will be contacted on a weekly basis by the project's researchers in order to provide their feedback based on their practical experience with the platform.
The piloting phase is expected to start in May 2017. Four pilots will run in four European countries (Italy, Spain, UK and France) in order to investigate the benefits of using CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD, comparing data of the user groups with respective data of control groups. The pilot study will last for 18 months and a total of 600 dyads will participate.
