Designing Care Experiences & Interactions
This course advances the practice of design in healthcare by examining how it can be framed through the lens of human scale. We share examples across disciplines and healthcare contexts to gain an understanding of how design gestures (spaces, tools, artifacts, and communications) can produce value for both patients and providers. Students create their own proposals for design innovation in their chosen context, using what they have learned from a survey of practices across the fields of design and healthcare. Counts as a required course toward the certificate in Human-Centered Healthcare.
