With Juliette Anich & Juan Sanin

Monday 9:30 – 12:30 / Thursday 1:30 – 4:30

This is an immersive studio held in collaboration with the Peter Mac Cancer Centre and take on the challenge to imagine what a “Cancer Academy” might be. Using a multiple-stakeholder engagement approach, this studio will identify and develop key interventions to improve the delivery of information to patients and carers. Information and understanding are crucial for clinical and non-clinical aspects of treatment and contribute to make the healthcare system more efficient. This studio will explore how can Peter Mac interact with its patients, share with them the most up to date, valuable, reliable and personal information possible, and how this information can be retained and shared by the patient. This will be a landmark studio within Industrial Design as it continues our research in the field of Design for Wellbeing and in the context of the Melbourne Innovation District. This studio will include a week-long studio intensive with participation from users and practitioners. Outcomes of this studio will inform the design of future product-service systems within the Peter Mac Cancer Centre.
