Abstract

The notion that mobile, digital, and networked technologies may provide a useful and persuasive platform for changing people’s practices towards healthier lifestyle has led to an abundance in applications and services that aimed at achieving such goals. However, these endeavours have been met with a level of success generally discrepant to the hopeful expectation, in part because of the difficulty of addressing the complexity of values, forms, and concepts surrounding health and wellbeing. In order to create impactful and cost-effective digital and networked technologies for health and wellbeing, we recommend taking holistic, transdisciplinary approaches that place design at its centre in order to 1) Reconceptualise wellbeing as imagined, perceived, and experienced by individuals and communities 2) Expand and innovate research methods to gain rich insights into people’s practices around health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on related uses of technologies 3) Design and evaluate technologies in ways that are relevant for the Queensland’s people, sociocultural contexts and public health challenges.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
