Abstract

Review objective:The objective of this review is to systematically identify, review and synthesize relevant qualitative research on end user and implementer experiences of mobile health (mHealth) technologies developed for noncommunicable chronic disease management in young adults. “End users” are defined as young people aged 15–24 years, and “implementers” are defined as health service providers, clinicians, policy makers and administrators.The two key questions we wish to systematically explore from identified relevant qualitative studies or studies with qualitative components are:What are users’ (end user and implementer) experiences with mHealth technologies to support health interventions for the management of chronic noncommunicable conditions, including persistent musculoskeletal pain?What factors do users (end user and implementer) perceive or experience as facilitators or barriers to the uptake and/or implementation of mHealth technologies for young people with chronic noncommunicable conditions, including persistent musculoskeletal pain?
