“The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art, London, presents an exhibition of twenty projects from the UK and Norway that demonstrate the benefits of people-centred design thinking.”
Medically-minded readers might particularly like the “Redesigning the Ambulance: improving mobile emergency healthcare” project.
The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design was also behind the design of the NPSA’s Design for patient safety series of documents, including “A guide to the design of electronic infusion devices” which includes some wonderfully clear and often vivacious line-drawings of users tackling some issues with medical devices along with suggested solutions for improvement.
