The DATAShift Application (App) is a research application that allows Study participants, in connection with the RCMP Longitudinal PTSD Study, to:

- collect wearable biometric data

The Study is aimed at gaining a better understanding of the long-term relationships between individual resiliency factors and risk factors for symptoms of post-traumatic stress and/or other mental health factors.

The research project will be led by Dr. R. Nicholas Carleton, a clinician at the University of Regina who is also a professor in psychology and is an internationally recognized research leader in mental health for first responders and other public safety personnel.


The study only requires Vital Signs, Activity, and Mindfulness and Sleep Data, but if a participant chooses to activate the tracking of other data variables, those data will be collected by the devices and transmitted for analyses; again, the data is only associated with a participant ID. For a full list of data types please see: https://www.rcmpstudy.ca/assets/data-collections-chart-april-16.pdf. Please note that the physiological data collected are not transmitted to the research team in real time.

The user has full control on whether or not their Health Data is actually sent to the server even after they have granted the app with permissions to HealthKit. We also explicitly state which health info we require from the participant from within the app. (-> Settings)
