If you have decided to take part in this study, you will be using this app and your Fitbit alongside a course of CBT therapy with Ieso Digital Health and will have signed a consent form and contract with us. In this part of the study, this app will ask your permission to collect data from your phone and your Fitbit.
Data collected will include:
- Fitbit activity data, including active, cardio and peak minutes per day, total sleep and awake time per day;
- Location summary measures, including total distance travelled, number of locations visited, time spent at home and maximum distance from home, per day;
- Digital interaction information, including time spent using your phone, per day;
- Social interaction information, including time spent on social media or messaging apps per day.
Personal identifiable information such as your exact location, details of social media profile, or phone numbers of your contacts, will NOT be collected by this app.
At the start of the study you will also be asked to complete two questionnaires:
- Schwartz Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ-21) – this questionnaire consists of 21 questions aimed at measuring human values constructs such as openness to change, self-enhancement and conservation;
- Big Five Inventory-2 Short Version (BFI-2-S) – this questionnaire consists of 30 questions aimed at measuring core personality traits such as extraversion, conscientiousness and open-mindedness.
You only have to complete these once and it should take no longer than 10 minutes. You will also be asked to complete a daily mood questionnaire, by answering one question. This allows the app to show you associations between your behaviours (e.g. physical activity, sleep, location and social interaction) and your mood.
If you are in the “patient and therapist” arm of the study, your therapist will also be able to view the associations between your behaviours and your mood. They will use this information to inform your course of therapy. You will be able to discuss the data with your therapist.
