“HKDI inspire* Design Thinking 2018” master lecture - Healthy by Design


Master Lecture and Workshop by Professor Ian Gwilt, University of South Australia
"Healthy by Design"
Date: 10 September 2018
Time: 5:30-6:30pm

Good things can happen when designers collaborate with care professionals and the community…

There is a growing body of evidence that advocates design and creative practices can help care providers to better understand the lived experience of healthcare. This knowledge can, in turn, be used to drive innovation and improvements in healthcare service delivery and public health, to empower individuals and communities when making life choices in respect to personal and communal wellbeing.

The inclusion of design and design researchers in interdisciplinary health and wellbeing projects allows for the rapid development and prototyping of objects, environments, systems & services, and digital technologies that can respond to evolving care issues such as the managing of non-communicable diseases, preventative care through healthy living choices, and designing for the needs of an aging community.

Professor Gwilt will talk about and share his experiences in the benefits and challenges involved in bringing together designers, healthcare professionals and community to drive innovation. He will discuss how this can be achieved through the application of user-centred design research methods to involve multilevel stakeholders - patients, healthcare professionals, families and communities - to explore and better understand the real-life experiences of healthcare and wellbeing.
