Development of the ProPal-COPD tool to identify patients with COPD for proactive palliative care.
Our objective was to develop a tool to identify patients with COPD for proactive palliative care. Since palliative care needs increase during the disease course of COPD, the prediction of mortality within 1 year, measured during hospitalizations for

A telemonitoring tool based on serious games addressing money management skills for people with intellectual disability.
This article presents a telemonitoring tool based on computer games, aimed at money management skill improvement for people with Intellectual Disabilities (ID). The presented tool is divided into two parts: on one hand, some training activities relat

Home telemonitoring in COPD: a systematic review of methodologies and patients' adherence.
This systematic review aimed to provide a comprehensive description of the methodologies used in home telemonitoring interventions for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and to explore patients' adherence and satisfaction with the use of te

The 'gut bucket': a novel training tool for standardised patients.
Standardised patients (SPs) are often asked to portray complex physical roles in which authenticity is paramount; however, SPs come from a variety of backgrounds, and may lack knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology that can hamper their portrayal.

VitalQPlus: a potential screening tool for early diagnosis of COPD.
This study utilized a validated combination of a COPD Population Screener (COPD-PS) questionnaire and a handheld spirometric device as a screening tool for patients at high risk of COPD, such as smokers. The study aimed to investigate and pilot the f

Development of a system for telemonitoring of respiration parameters for patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a chronic sleep disorder affecting a large number of the global population. Telemonitoring has been successfully evaluated as an alternative method to traditional care. This paper identifies drawbacks of the current telemon

Telemonitoring of patients with Parkinson's disease using inertia sensors.
