Why Design & Health
Design offers a solution-focused approach to solving complex multifaceted problems related to health and wellbeing. It offers a framework for understanding this complexity and for developing solutions that meet the needs of all stakeholders.
Who we work with
Our research is inherently interdisciplinary. Working at the intersection of research, design and clinical expertise, we research, design and evaluate interventions all with a focus on improving health and wellbeing. We work closely with hospital, academic, industry and community collaborators. Our collaborators include the Mater Hospital, Design Innovation Lab at St James’s Hospital, RCSI, Peamount Hospital and Tympany Medical.
How we work
At the core of our work is an applied design-led methodology which incorporates rigorous research, interdisciplinary collaboration, and a people-centered approach. We work closely with health professionals, users and relevant stakeholders to map, understand and co-design solutions which we iteratively prototype, deploy and evaluate in context. This approach enables us to develop solutions that are impactful, effective, and accessible.
