The second transnational meeting, held in Hanoi in the beginning of January, was very fruitful, clearing the next steps and targets and equipping with necessary knowledge about the process and how to reach the aims. Also, one essential part of the face-to-face meetings is partners getting to know each other, which again builds trust and facilitates openness and cooperation. The common understanding is growing about how this group works together for the common goals, and how it benefits from the variety of expertise and talents within the consortium.
Teams in different universities had worked on getting overall picture on the related research literature in digitalization of patient coaching and self-management support. Based on this broad picture, more specific literature search questions were divided between partners. Search strategies were developed in cooperation within workshops.
