Design for Health and Wellbeing Lab - Auckland, New Zealand
The Design for Health and Wellbeing (DHW) Lab in Auckland, was originally a collaborative project between AUT’s Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies between the AUT’s Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies and the Auckland District Health Board (Auckland DHB) inside of and the Auckland District Health Board (Auckland DHB) inside of the central-local hospital.
The lab aspires to be a "design space in which designers, students, patients and hospital staff could work together to identify and address contemporary healthcare issues in innovative ways" and was created together with members of those groups. It can be described as a co-design (and co-designed) space (Reay et al. 2016).
