CHI+MED’s Ann Blandford and Jo Iacovides are giving talks in the ‘Putting people at the centre of digital health‘ session at UCL’s Festival of Digital Health, on Monday 30 June 2014. The talks take place in the Roberts Building (Torrington Place).
Ann Blandford (CHI+MED’s principal investigator, at UCL) is giving a ‘Human Factors 101‘ talk at 7pm and before that Jo Iacovides will also talk about ‘Games, websites and apps that focus on human error, healthcare, and well-being‘ at 4.45pm (repeated at 6pm).
Registration for these sessions is free.
“People are at the centre of healthcare. This event will comprise short of presentations and interactive demonstrations of work at UCL that is putting the patient at the heart of Digital Health solutions. These will include technologies for understanding healthcare, managing chronic pain, supporting well-being and promoting health behaviour change. The evening will close with an interactive talk introducing “Human Factors in Healthcare: Human Factors 101″ for those involved in designing, implementing, procuring and deploying Digital Health solutions. And of course, an opportunity to network.
We aim to discuss and exhibit our work on understanding healthcare and human error, on sensing motion/emotion in healthy and chronic pain populations and on feedback to increase motivation, to promote behaviour change and to provoke changes in body perception.”
Jo Iacovides’ talk (with Rosie Webster) – Games, websites and apps that focus on human error, healthcare, and well-being (15 minutes)
Starts: 4.45pm (repeated at 6pm) Ends: 5pm (6.15pm)
“This mini-talk will introduce the technology being demoed as part of the Human Factors in Healthcare Event. We will be presenting websites, apps and games that support understanding of healthcare contexts and human error; promote well-being and evoke behaviour change.”
Before both these sessions there is also a talk on ‘Motion and emotion sensing and feedback. The Emo&Pain project’ (4.30-4.45pm and repeated at 5.45-6pm) with Nadia Berthouze and Amanda Williams.
After Ann’s talk there will be drinks and nibbles, and networking.
