The communication of risk in health is a diffcult task, with numerous pitfalls. It's important to pay attention to the environment in which the risk is communicated. By doing so, you can attempt to take control of the environment and shape it to avoid the pitfalls.
The digital age is upon us, in our homes as well as at the hospital. There is no reason why tools in health intervention should not be digital as well. Digital tools possess the ability to present risks with interactive and vivid graphics, as opposed to paper based tools. This may improve the communication process and limit the infuence of unwanted biases and errors.
This thesis describes the development of a digital intervention tool for cardiovascular disease. The objective of the thesis is to shed light on how a tool like this should be designed. In addition, it also presents an implementation developed according to these standards.
