Third Week already?
In the morning we had a visit from Product Design graduate Jade Richardson, an Innovation Consultant for Macmillan Cancer support. She gave a talk on her professional experiences as a designer in healthcare. It was great to have the chance to listen to someone with this background.
In the afternoon we have created three sub teams:
Testing instructions, Waiting room and Website.
- Talk on designing for healthcare
- Team subdivision
We had our third tutorial with Rachael Sleight where we were reassured on delegation of work roles within the subgroups. She gave us pointers to improve our next presentation .
We then conducted some research and discussed concepts in our sub groups before joining together to have a full group discussion where we shared and contributed to each other's ideas.
- Tutorial and role assignment
We have been working on all of the content produced to date in order to achieve a higher level of consistency in terms of visual identity and delivery.
The website team began the process by researching other clinics websites from Scotland to outwards. Some prize-winning references made a statement on simplicity and ease of access.
The test instruction team researched existing versions of other tests for comparison points.
The Waiting room team began researching recent design work around waiting rooms and healthcare experiences. We found that multiple design teams put an emphasis on having a variety of seating options and clear sight lines to important information. We also found this quote “your waiting room is your first chance to tell your patients you care about them”.
- Presentation restructuring
End of Week 3
The website team started to organise the structure of content by collecting all page information and complete a full sitemap.
Today, the Waiting room team focused on ideation. Using sticky notes and our research, we explored as many solutions as possible. We then evaluated these ideas to find which will be most effective.
