FUTURE HEALTH  

MY CIRCLE OF LIFE

Healthy growing, balanced living, happy ageing and dignified dying. It is what we all want, and what should be possible for all of us. But to accomplish a Circle of Life that meets each of our individual desires, we must (re)create healthcare together: doctor & designer, healthcare user & healthcare provider, researcher & educator, officer & civilian.

 
Designers create products and services with and for end-users everyday. The My Circle of Life program looks into the future of healthcare from a design perspective, considers empathy as a new design criterium and provides expert-insight in the design methods, products and services that put the healthcare-user in the driver's seat.

 

 PROGRAM 

BLOCK 1 | HEALTHY GROWING
10:00 - 11:00

As times change, new challenges to keep young people healthy are imminent: the number of overweight children and teenagers is rising, social media use is intensifying and concerns about mental health, peer pressure, drug use and bullying are becoming more urgent. Experts from the creative industry and healthcare discuss future health design to stimulate positive behavior among growing children.

Moderator: Corine Jansen 

Context | A healthcare perspective on healthy growing
As child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Deschamps works with children and their caregivers on a daily basis. In his lecture, he will focus on environmental context of young people in general and specific needs of children with developmental problems to grow up as healthy as possible. He will also share some insights from a doctors perspective on his teams attempts at designing future healthcare interventions for young people and lessons learned during the first steps in a gamification design process for children with developmental disorders.

Speaker: Peter Deschamps 

Creative Practice | Moving Stories
Moving Stories is an applied game made by Trimbos and IJsfontein. The game targets substantive knowledge in the field of depression and suicide amongst adolescents in secondary school. Currently, a fully functional prototype is being validated in a study with 2500 participants. 

Speaker: Evert Hogendoorn

Creative Practice | Double interview about co-design technics for Healthy Students & Children with Autism

Frens Pries works on patient-centred approaches to healthcare. Policy makers, healthcare professionals are in search of the real meaning of personalized care. How do medical products and services, such as self-monitoring apps, add to the experience of personalization?

Helma van Rijn develops interactive light animations and games in multi-disciplinary teams of designers and developers in co-design with children with autism, their teachers & therapists. How do they get these children with developmental and autism spectrum disorder to play together at the table?

Speakers: Frens Pries, Helma van Rijn

Recap | Q&A with all speakers

All speakers will be invited to the stage for a short Q&A about the design methods and tools that have been discussed in the block.

 

BLOCK 2 |  BALANCED LIVING
11:30 - 12:30

We want to be in control of our own health. Quantifying the self, getting access to personal health info and managing a personal lifestyle raises new questions: about data-ownership, privacy and a changing doctor-patient relationship for instance. Experts from the creative industry and healthcare discuss future health design to personalize digital healthcare.

Moderator: Corine Jansen 

Context | A healthcare perspective on balanced living
Balanced living is build on nurturing patterns. Most of our behaviour is subconsious and largely automated. Some of our behavioural patterns are intrinsicly harmfull. To maintain and restore balance we need to redesign the bad patterns in our life. Antonio shares insights in how a combination of personalized care and the concept of vitality can give relevant cues for care services that aim at supporting healthy behaviour.

Speaker:  Antonio A-Tjak

Creative Practice | Remote healthcare 
Jan Willem presents his vision on why healthcare needs a personalised approach. He uses practical examples of healthcare tools developed by his agency Greenberry to support his presentation: Dokter op Zak (The Pocket Doctor) by FBTO, Slimme vragenlijst (Smart Questionnaire) by Zilveren Kruis, CliniClowns app (Careclowns app) and App de Vakantiedokter (The Holiday Doctor) by Zilveren Kruis.

Speaker: Jan-Willem van Beek

Creative Practice | Personalised Health TU Delft
Policy makers, healthcare professionals, and patients alike are calling for patient-centred, personalized approaches to care. At the Tailored Healthcare Lab of Delft University of Technology Tessa Dekkers and Bob Groeneveld are developing patient profiles as an exemplary design resource for the development of personalized product-service designs in healthcare. They will share some preliminary insights, as well as their experiences in the crossover project between design and psychology.

BLOCK 3 | HAPPY AGEING
13:30 - 14:30

Quality of life is becoming one of the most important control mechanisms for elderly care. What does it mean to age with vitality and happiness and which tools can aid in the process? Experts from the creative industry and healthcare discuss future health design to empower elderly people.

Moderator: Corine Jansen 

Context | A healthcare perspective on happy ageing
Never before this many people grew as old as at they do at this very moment and populations will continue to age. With this, a growing diversity in generations will arise as well as a growing diversity within the group of elderly people. What does 'happy ageing' mean to different people and what is necessary for them to succeed in it? Can we design future health in such a way that people are equipped to meet the challenges of growing older in a changing world? Either way, new collaborations between ageing people and their caregivers is necessary. How can the creative industry support in the process? Robbert Huijsman shares his experiences as professor Management & Organization of Elderly Care, the trends and developments he sees in the sector and the way creative companies can contribute.

Speaker: Robbert Huijsman

Creative Practice | Designing for people with dementia
We will discuss colllaborations and results of the the EU Marie Curie RISE project MinD that aims to study how innovative design can support mindful self-empowerment and social engagement. In this groundbreaking project, an interdisciplinary consortium of academic and non-academic partners combines research in product and environmental design, ICT, dementia care and psychology.

Speakers: Geke Ludden, Ingeborg Griffioen

Creative Practice | FIT: Using design research to bridge dementia-related needs with solutions for the home environment
In this session, 2 design-researchers and a healthcare professional will reflect on the concept development of the ‘FIT Keuzehulp’: a decision-aid-tool for matching (and identifying) needs of people with dementia with existing product and service solutions. ‘FIT Keuzehulp’ is the result of a two-year research project in which designers, researchers, healthcare professionals and users collaborated closely. Two designers and a health care professional involved in the project will reflect on the lessons learned regarding what each discipline could contribute and learn from each other, and the added value and challenges when working together. 

Speakers: Nazli Cila, Natasja de Knecht, Hester van Zuthem

BLOCK 4 |  DIGNIFIED DYING
15:00 - 16:00

Moderator: Corine Jansen 

Perspectives of dignity

What is a dignified end to life? And how can we take control of this process? Ineke Koedam addresses different perspectives of dignified dying and points out what is most needed for anyone in general and  for the creative industry in particular, to come up with solutions.

Speaker: Ineke Koedam

Creative Practice | Interactive Design in the last stages of life
At GainPlay Studio we aspire to improve health through impactful play. But what does this mean when developing for the last stage of life? What are the design challenges you face when your “players” are terminally ill and the most beautiful gift is to get a dignified farewell. Based on case of the “End of Life Coach” we discuss these precarious challenges.

Speaker: Teun Aalbers

Creative Practice | Design your own funeral! – or maybe not?

Funerals have been roughly the same for centuries. Different types of class were the main divider. But nowadays we all want a different funeral. At the moment, major questions concern the personalization of the ceremony. Does personalization apply to everyone? Can your undertaker deal with it? And how can design be of assistance?

Speaker: Guus Sluiter
