About the course
Design in the Medical Space was conducted in collaboration with the Hadassah Mount Scopus Rehabilitation Department. Since its inception in 2015, this yearly course has focused on patient experiences in medical institutions. The intensive 5-day seminar included observations, documentation and research of work methods and tools employed by medical staff, and identifying needs, abilities, aspirations, and design possibilities.
The seminar concluded with a presentation of practical solutions to promote patient experiences based on an inclusive design approach. These were then presented to the Hadassah Department of Physiotherapy for further research and development.
