Aim of the resource

The intention of this platform is to support healthcare workers understand the potential of co-design and how it can be applied to their workflow. The material collected in this page is aimed to offer a first glimpse of successful applications of this symbiosis and some theoretical and practical know-how on how to start.

How to use it

Stories, news and events are accessible on this platform, both online and offline. In our Resources section you have always access to downloadable materials, and on each resource you will find instructions on how to make good use of them. Use cases are a selection of careables that we believe are representative of good careable principles: well designed, in terms of process, and well documented. You can read them on website, where all careables are stored. By exploring their documentation and other features you can get a practical sense of what means to deal with careables’ practical issues and potential.
