The aims of this event are:

  • To engage stakeholders in the selection of appropriate tools and processes to codesign solutions for older people with sensory impairment and their medicines.

The key themes of this event are around:

  • Older people
  • Sensory impairment – visual and/or hearing
  • The safe and effective use of medicines
  • Healthcare design

This is an interactive event comprising a mixture of short presentations, small group discussions and consensus procedures.

This event will help to identify the preferred tool and processes to use for a co-design/co-production study as well as to identify/recruit participants (individuals and/or organisations) to participate in the co-design/co-production study.
