[workshop] Design in health information – Wednesday 20 June 2012, 9.30am – 16.30pm – Leeds cc @S_Wilcox

Graphic design in patient & public information. Might be of interest to some on the list, possibly a bit short notice (my fault, sorry!). Even if it is too short notice it’s worth being aware of PiF (Patient Information Forum) as they send this sort of stuff out quite regularly, but it’s not free to be a member.   I like it when emails specifically say ‘please pass on’ – you’d be surprised (well, perhaps not) by how many don’t say that and when I ask if I can send out further they say “yes please do”.   Jo     ————————————   Dear PiF member

 This is just a reminder that this week is the last chance to book to attend the PiF workshop on Wednesday 20 June 2012 on the topic of Design in Health Information.  The event will be held at The Queens Hotel, Leeds.  We hope you can join us, and can pass this notification on to colleagues who may find this event of interest.

This one day event explores the role of good graphic design in producing high quality health information for patients and the public. The influence of graphic design on health information, regardless of the medium, is as important as the role of the content in producing something accessible, usable and meaningful. It is a key element in conveying the messages you want to send, to the audiences you want to receive them.

 Sessions include:
Information design in healthcare, Brian Parkinson, Director, Making Sense Design
Design basics, Claire Blood, Graphic Designer, The James Cook University Hospital
Good web design, Ben Foster, Operations Director, Patient Services, patient.co.uk
Creating, using and sourcing images, Lisa Fisher  – Medical Photographer / Member of Institute of Medical Illustrators, The James Cook University Hospital
How targeted design creates measurable behaviour change – Anna Barraclough, Senior Designer and Illustrator, Resonant Media
Design for people with learning disabilities, Two speakers, including one with learning disabilities, Change
Design for people with visual impairment,  Stephen Russell, Account Manager,  RNIB
