Bridging the gap between clinical and patient-provided images
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: The First Conference in Visual Literacy
I will be reporting here on how a group of artists and designers and a group of patients approached the task of visualising the meaning of specific medical diagnoses without recourse to traditional medical imagery. The purpose was to investigate how people relate to images produced in healthcare and how alternative visual aids might complement printed and verbal communications between doctor and patient. One fundamental concern of this study was to evaluate the influence and effect images have on patients´experience and knowledge of their personal health. The study was carried out to collect material for further research and ultimately for the development of visualisation tools, methods and objects.
