If you want to take your solutions and ideas to new heights, then join us at Design Thinking: a Human-Centred Approach to Health Care Improvement! We will curate recent knowledge around innovation and design thinking, and provide the opportunity to apply the design thinking methodology to a real-life health care challenge. Join us for an interactive session that will do things differently!

  • Discover ways design thinking can support change and transformation
  • Explore the five-step design thinking process
  • Apply the design thinking process to a real-life health care challenge
