Health Care Development using Design Methodologies and -Competence
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

My research aims at identifying how designerly ways of reasoning and conducting work can develop health care to become more person-centered. I am currently involved in participatory research in a project conducted at Karolinska Institute on how to involve both patients and caregivers in the development of tools to improve the care situation and to facilitate their mutual understanding concerning chronic conditions.

My PhD studies lay in the intersection of Design / HMI / Health Care:

DESIGN- through experiences and background based on a Master of Fine Arts in the field of industrial design,

HMI- Human Machine Interaction as my field of PhD studies at the department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University, as well as experiences from consultancy within interaction design, and

HEALTH CARE- through experiences from Clinical Innovation Fellowships* and my current action research at Karolinska Institute.



*Clinical Innovation Fellowships is a cross-disciplinary 8 month program aiming at innovating health care. It builds on combining competences in engineering, health care, management, design, etc in 2-3 teams of 3-4 persons each that are assigned a specific clinic at Karolinska University Hospital. My team was at Gastro Centre Surgery and our partner-team at the Emergency Department. After on-site observations during 1-2 months to collect clinical needs the teams work on need-based innovations.
