User research in Healthcare
We're starting 2019 with an event on user research in healthcare!
Medtech is a booming area. Ensuring that health-related products and services are designed in a user-centred way is critical to the health and safety of the users. Join us to learn and get inspiration from two UXers who have lots of experience in this field!
This event is generously sponsored by Netlife Design - they'll be hosting us in their offices and providing pizza and drinks!
17:30 - Doors open for pizza, drinks and mingle!
18:00 - Talks start (we'll do a 15 min break between the talks). After the talks we'll hold a Q&A session with the two speakers
20:30 - Event ends
We have two fantastic speakers lined up for the evening:
**Erica Gibson, Head of UX at Schibsted**
Erica Gibson has worked in academia as a university professor, healthcare as a medical ethnographer, and industry heading up UX teams at Telenor and now Schibsted.
About her talk:
Erica will be focusing on her time spent as a medical ethnographer exploring medical technology and its link to healthcare. She will cover ethical questions, pitfalls, and learnings using case studies from her work in Silicon Valley.
**Chris Atherton, Interaction Designer at Netlife Design**
Originally an academic psychologist, Chris now builds and evaluates user experiences, with an emphasis on usability and good cognitive hygiene.
About her talk:
When Netlife set out to help Helsedirektoratet.no with the redesign of their website, the need to build in usability testing was very clear. On a tight budget and working to ambitious deadlines, they managed to test design ideas with real users more or less every other week. This early feedback proved essential — here's how they did it, and some of what they learned on the way.
