In collaboration with the Clinical Science Department at Florida International University, Colliga won a grant from the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). This grant will fund the training of next-generation psychology students on the use of digital, remote monitoring in clinical practice.
About APPIC and Their Teletraining Grant
APPIC supports the training of doctoral and postdoctoral-level psychologists through applied internships and training programs. According to their website, APPIC’s mission is “to facilitate access, foster development, and support implementation of quality training and education in Health Services Psychology.” In response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, APPIC launched a grant to support programs dedicated to training students in the use of technology, remote health monitoring, and telehealth.
Colliga will provide access to and use of our data collection and remote monitoring system. The training will include seminars on best practices in digital health monitoring and instruction on using our software.
How Colliga Will Help
Colliga will provide access to and use of our data collection and remote monitoring system. The training will include seminars on best practices in digital health monitoring and instruction on using our software. In collaboration with their supervisors, trainees will create and send individualized assessments to their patients through smartphones, which patients will complete in between sessions. Students will then use data to monitor patient progress. As part of their training, students will give case reports to supervisors to summarize how remote monitoring impacted treatment adherence and effectiveness.
In today’s changing world, and in response to the challenges of COVID-19, psychologists and medical professionals must receive training in remote, tele-based services. Colliga is committed to building new tools that help the next generation of clinical scientists and medical practitioners meet tomorrow’s challenges.
