Designing for Supportive Accountability: Using Conversational Agents to Sustain Patient Engagement in PTSD
The purpose of this study is to better understand the use and acceptance of conversational agents (CAs) aiming to support individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Specifically, we will focus on examining CA prototypes that can provide useful information and support individuals with PTSD while sustaining adherence and engagement. This study corresponds to Phase 1 of the NSF grant (e.g., participatory design). The outcomes of the study will be used to advance to Phase 2 of the grant (i.e., system development"). A separate IRB application will be submitted for Phase 2. Toward this goal, we will interview individuals living with PTSD to assess the feasibility, acceptability, and correctness of the prototype of CAs.
