    Title of presentation: 

    Affective UX in Chronic Disease Care  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    In this talk I will present findings from ongoing research projects concerned with supporting the affective and emotional dimension of coping and living with chronic diseases through digital healthcare technologies. Finding out that one has a chronic disease and learning to live with this condition is a life-changing experience characterised by a great amount of affective and emotional uncertainty. I will propose an agenda for Affective UX as a central element in designing meaningful and careful technologies that actively engage with this condition to improve people’s overall wellbeing.
