Technology-based CBT for youth anxiety: #CAMHScampfire appraisal by Douglas Badenoch
Douglas BadenochI am an Information Scientist with an interest in making knowledge from systematic research more accessible to people who need it. Since 1995 I’ve been attempting this in the area of Evidence-Based Health Care (EBHC), initially at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine in Oxford. In 2002 I co-founded Minervation Ltd to help organisations develop digital applications, educational resources and skills in EBHC. In that time I’ve worked with a wide variety of clients, large and small, across the public, private and third sectors. In 2011, I co-founded the National Elf Service to provide accessible, usable and reliable summaries of important new evidence, and am a regular contributor to The Mental Elf. I am on the Editorial Board of the BMJ Journal of Evidence-Based Medicine, and am an Editor of the James Lind Library.
