Examining the patient experience with electronic cognitive behavioural therapy

Electronic or internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (eCBT has been implemented widely in healthcare settings, but has become even more prevalent since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting decrease in availability of face-to-face treatment. The purpose of this study is to explore the personal experiences of patients and providers who have transitioned between face-to-face CBT and eCBT and their motivations for switching and persisting in the eCBT modality. This project will add to the limited research on the implementation of eCBT in real-world healthcare settings. Insights from this research will assist with successful implementation of patient-centred internet-based CBT interventions
