Speaker: David Dickinson, Consumation.
Health information implies a relationship between the health industry (NHS, medicines, drug industry) and its users (who are not always patients).
This implicit relationship is clearly embedded in documents and information that the health industry produces - complex language, authoritarian instructions and poor design make up a dangerous cocktail, and there's little doubt it could be harmful to people's health.
Looking at examples of forms, instruction leaflets and other healthcare resources, this talk will examine how we can create a healthier relationship, and the potential role of information design in improving health.
David Dickinson was formerly editor of Health Which? and is a leading expert on patient information.
