IIID Conversation with Wolfe Erikson: The Future of Care, 23 May 2024, 17:00 UTC

Wolfe Ericson will talk about The Future of Care: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Information Design For Healthcare Services.

During our time we will frame the complexities of what it means to navigate the US medical system as a person with chronic and / or disabling health concerns. This will include a primer into what trauma is and how it impacts the nervous system – and will underscore the core principles of trauma informed design. We’ll also discuss case studies of information design as it is being used within healthcare services and how these interventions can positively or negatively impact patients.
