Using design to address healthcare challenges
Rama Gheerawo, Director of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, talks to us about using design to address some of society’s toughest and most challenges issues. Design thinking is used to create experiences, products, services and environments that improve quality of life for patients. He believes that we need to move health from having solely a biological focus to having a personal, aspirational and cultural focus. Understanding the full dimensions of a person’s life is at the heart of their healthcare work.
