Notes
"This Handbook is a product of OpenLab's Stuff Patients Want initiative. Stuff Patients Want is a participatory design initiative in which patients come together to share health care experiences they find frustrating. These patients are then armed with the tools (e.g. design, production)they need to bring their practical and inspired solutions to life. Stuff Patients Want is carried out in the Scandinavian participatory design tradition, driven by the idea that the people destined to use a product or service should play a critical role in designing it, and characterized by active collaboration between users and designers throughout the participatory process."
