The launch of the University’s Health Research theme yesterday provided an opportunity for CIDR to exhibit two aspects of its work
– historical materials, held in the Otto and Marie Neurath Isotype Collection, showing public health communications, prepared in the 1940s for the American TB Association, to explain the prevention and treatment of TB
– current research projects in information design for health care, ranging from public information to reduce medicines waste, through care bundles to support clinical staff’s detection and treatment of acute kidney injury, to building dementia carers’ understanding of and involvement in the care of relatives with dementia. Some extracts from the exhibition are shown below.
Our thanks are due to all our collaborators in health care organisations and our funders for the opportunities to engage in projects which both move on understanding of information design for health care and have practical benefits for the people who use the designed project outputs.
