This evaluation study aims to assess the user experience, the use and the potential health effects of a fully working Council of Coaches system implemented in a real-world setting among the target population, consisting of older adults or adults with diabetes mellitus type 2 or chronic pain. 

Furthermore, this deliverable reports on the ethical approval of the study in the Netherlands and in Scotland. For the study in the Netherlands we received a waiver of ethical approval from the Medical Research Ethics Committee (MREC) CMO Arnhem-Nijmegen. This means that, according to the Dutch law, this study does not require formal medical ethical approval. For the study in Scotland the study protocol has been reviewed and approved on behalf of the School of Science and Engineering Research Ethics Committee (SSEREC) at the University of Dundee.
