VALiD: The value of augmented reality for improving medicine literacy in diabetes and hypertension

VALiD: The value of augmented reality

VALiD (Heart Foundation Award Reference Number 101415) aims to assess the feasibility of a concept for improving health literacy; embedding the health literacy improvement into the medicine use cycle and providing continuous access to information; and giving extended communication to people for shared learning with their care providers, carers, or peers. Currently, the packages of medicines contain ‘static’ consumer medicine information (CMI) sheets that many people may not read, understand or notice. Our aim is to test an Augmented Reality based intervention for improving health literacy around one guideline-endorsed family of antihypertensive medicines in Type 2 Diabetes.
