Redesigning Health Care

Monash Health

We hosted a design programme to solve challenges for chronically ill teenagers.

Challenge

Stepping outside of the hospital

Monash Health and Isobar recognised that adolescents with disabilities or chronic health issues are at a vulnerable point in their lives. As a minority group coming through Monash hospital, they often get forgotten about.

Solution

A design jam to change lives

It was important to set this group up for success, enabling them to enter early adulthood with every expectation of being valuable and productive members of society. 

Through our results, we have impacted United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 Good Health and Well-being.  We looked at how design thinking can help solve their day-to-day challenges and what sort of initiatives these kids and teenagers would like to see, to improve their care at the hospital and their lives overall.
