Design4Health Conference 2015
Lab4Living is pleased to announce the 3rd European Design4Health conference in Sheffield, 13-16 July 2015. Design4Health2015 explores the relationship between design, and health and wellbeing. Our contributors are uniquely placed at the interface of design in health practice and research, bringing together designers and creative practitioners with researchers, clinicians, policy makers and service users.
Over three days, our participants will investigate creative approaches and perspectives to enhance understanding and experience, and to improve the efficiency of health and wellbeing services and products.
This year’s conference focuses on methodologies, making and measurement. It includes a peer-reviewed exhibition, our second 24Hr Inclusive Design Challenge (looking at the impact of Parkinson’s Disease), workshops and presentations. Our keynotes presenters include Professor Gail Mountain, Professor of Health Services Research at the University of Sheffield and Professor Brendon McCormack, Head of Nursing at Queen Margaret University Edinburgh.
Design4Health2015 is generously supported by Headline Sponsor Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network, plus NIHR CLAHRC YH KYOTO Design Lab and Devices4HDignity. It is organised by Sheffield Hallam University’s Lab4Living.
