Designing the ‘Hospice of The Future‘
Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool are delighted to welcome two design researchers from the University of Liverpool to conduct a project to design the future of hospice care.
Andrew Tibbles (right) is a Ph.D. researcher in Design for End of life and Dr Farnaz Nickpour (left) is an Associate Professor in Design & Innovation.
Andrew and Farnaz will be ‘Designers in Residence’ in Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool for a year, where they will study all areas of the hospice. The aim of the Designer-in-Residence programme is to co-define and co-imagine current and future hospice care as an ecosystem of people, objects, environments, technologies, practices and narratives of care. The programme has three distinct objectives and deliverables respectively:
a) co-creating a systems map of the current hospice care;
b) co-defining key values, requirements and challenges in the current system; and
c) co-imagining new value propositions in future hospice care systems.
