4. Description: Business services: law, marketing, consulting, recruitment, printing and security. We are co-designing a digital health intervention, Digital-My Arm Pain Programme (D-MAPP), to reduce pain and improve long-term function for people with distal upper limb musculoskeletal disorders (DUL-MSDs). DUL-MSDs are painful elbow, forearm, wrist and hand conditions, including hand and wrist osteoarthritis (OA), tennis elbow, tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. We have been awarded a six-year applied research programme grant from the NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) to conduct this work.

We anticipate that the D-MAPP website will comprise a range of guided exercises and tailored self-management information specific to individual conditions, with features for goal setting and monitoring. Co-design is at the heart of the D-MAPP project. Therefore, we will be developing the content and features of the D-MAPP website collaboratively with patients and healthcare professionals. By ‘co-design’, we refer to a process of design that actively involves key stakeholders and supports them in creating a solution in line with their needs and experiences.

To undertake this process, we require expert facilitation for a number of online and face to face workshops.
