Empowering people and communities
To enable better prevention, wellbeing, health, care & support.
Person-centred design in health care and education.
Person-centred design is about exploring what our partners and their users want.
> To develop an understanding of their perceived, unperceived and unarticulated needs.
> To understand what an engaged partner looks like.
Translating design-thinking into practice.
We apply person-centred design to all aspects of our project management, while adopting the following principles:
• engaging our partners and their users, including patients and their families, in understanding their needs.
• including appropriateness as key concept within the fundamental design of the initiatives undertaken.
• ensuring projects designed are contextual, affordable, adaptable and scalable — thereby promoting appropriateness.
• undertaking an integrated, cross-disciplinary, community-focused approach to projects design.
Why apply design-thinking?
Design-thinking is an approach used to solve complex problems, and find desirable solutions.
A design mindset is not problem-focused — it's solution focused & action oriented.
— Towards creating a preferred future.
