- Public TitleThe effectiveness of a mobile app in reducing of post-traumatic stress symptoms
- Scientific TitleSUPPORT Coach - The Effectiveness of a Mobile Application in Reducing Traumatic Stress
- ACRONYMSUPPORT Coach
- hypothesisWe hypothesize that usage of the SUPPORT Coach app will lead to a reduction of post-traumatic stress symptoms directly after usage of the app compared to participants that do not use the app. Furthermore, we expect that usage of the SUPPORT Coach will decrease negative cognitions about the traumatic event(s) and increase psychological resilience and social support.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedPost-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Posttraumatic stress symptoms, Trauma related complaints (e.g. anxiety, depression)
- Inclusion criteriaThis study is conducted with adults in a high risk profession (e.g., ambulance and emergency department personnel).

- InterventionsParticipants in the intervention condition will receive unlimited access (during one month) to 'The SUPPORT Coach', a mobile application designed to support individuals with post-traumatic stress symptoms. The app includes information on post-traumatic stress and professional care, exercises and tools to manage traumatic stress symptoms, a self-test to monitor symptoms over time, a seek support section and a calendar function.

Participants in the control group will not receive access to the SUPPORT Coach. Participants in both conditions have access to their own (mental) care if necessary.
- Primary outcomeThe difference in post-traumatic stress symptoms (continuous PCL-5 scores) between the intervention and control condition directly after termination of the intervention period.
- Secondary outcome1. The difference in negative cognitions about the trauma (PTCI) between the intervention and control condititon directly after termination of the intervention period.
2. The difference in psychological resilience (RES) and perceived social support (SSL-6) between the intervention and control condition directly after termination of the intervention period.
3. User satisfaction with the SUPPORT Coach will be evaluated and user logs will be explored for implementation-information purposes.
- TimepointsPrimary outcome: PCL-5 scores directly upon termination of the 1-month intervention period
Secondary outcomes: PTCI, RES, and SSL-6 scores directly upon termination of the 1-month intervention period A follow-up is scheduled at 1 month after termination of the 1-month intervention period
