The ENTER program is part of a wider E Mental Health Research Unit within the Institute of Clinical Research, Faculty of Health, University of Southern Denmark.
We are located, and in partnership with, the Telepyschiatric Centre of the Region of Southern Denmark. Our cross institutional setting provides us with a unique research environment where clinical relevance, person-centred approaches and scientific inquiry can join in a united goal to create the evidence to support safe and effective person-centred technological responses and interventions to improve the mental health and wellbeing of people throughout Denmark.
Our ENTER team of researchers are working to develop best-practice evidence specifically with three clinical treatment projects and two projects exploring the cost effectiveness of the in clinical treatments.
Our ENTER objectives are:
1. Quality and Safety
To improve the quality of care and access to treatment for people with depression, anxiety and borderline personality disorder through the development and deployment of novel technologies.
2. Clinical efficacy, cost effectiveness, risks and disruptions
To build an evidence base for the clinical and cost effectiveness of any benefits. Identify possible risks and disruptors related to using technologies in the mental health care context.
3. Guide Practice-based implementation
To develop best practices and guidelines related to the delivery and implementation of new technologies as a companion to routine treatment; as blended care therapy or as stand alone digital intervention.
4. New business potential
To create a solid platform for initiating and coordinating future public/private sector research in E Mental Health.
One program of research consisting of five projects
- Three clinical trial projects investigating the use of novel technologies and service delivery formats.
- Two projects investigating cost-effectiveness and implementation of the services trialed.
