H. Social aspects

Major life areas

Which social areas does the use of the technology influence?


Map the major life areas of the patients or citizens using the technology, and their important others. Major life areas include family life, day care, school, work, leisure time, lifestyle, or other daily activities. The use of the technology can affect the final decision of the individual about participating.

Search for existing literature review, or collect primary studies and if possible conduct a litterateur review, or, if relevant data is not available, conduct a primary study; if there's no time for primary study, the opinion of health care professionals, patients, citizens, or important others can be consulted.
