Keynote Speakers


Felix is a Health Psychologist and has recently been appointed Professor of Health Psychology at the University of East Anglia (UEA). He leads a research programme focused on the development and evaluation of digital and technology-focused behaviour change interventions across multiple health behaviours, particularly smoking cessation. Felix has had topic expert roles on National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance committees focused on behaviour change and is currently President of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco Europe (SRNT-E).

Felix’s talk will focus on a key theme of his research - how digital health interventions can be tailored to individuals to maximise their relevance and impact. This includes the challenge of delivering real-time support adapted to in-the-moment psychological and situational factors.

How to develop popular and effective health apps: Lessons from the Smoke-Free app

Although some health apps have many millions of users, evidence on health benefits is limited, and in most cases, engagement is low and short-term. It remains a significant challenge to develop apps that will be popular and provide a demonstrable health benefit. Dave Crane developed the SmokeFree app using behavioural science principles. The app has been used by more than 6 million people worldwide, and there is an ongoing programme of scientific evaluation and development. This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to hear about and discuss the lessons learned from the development process.

Learning objectives for the workshop: 
After attending the workshop, participants will be able to:
1.    Critically examine features of health apps that increase the likelihood of achieving their specific health goals.
2.    Evaluate ways in which health apps can maintain a scientific foundation.
3.    Discuss the future of health apps and how they are likely to evolve.
