Claire Craig invited to speak at the Royal College of Occupational Therapists Specialist Section Housing Conference – Thursday 14 November 2019
Dr Claire Craig has been invited to speak at the Royal College of Occupational Therapists Specialist Section Housing Conference in Newcastle on Thursday 14 November 2019. She will use this as an opportunity to share a programme of research she is engaged in with the Lab4Living team focusing on the 100-Year Life and the Future Home. This is part of the recent Expanding Excellence in England award made by Research England to the Lab. Claire will focus particularly on a range of participatory methods that are at the heart of this project.
The conference’s theme is about keeping everything the Royal College of Occupational Therapists do person-centred and has a programme focusing on technology and collaborative working to achieve the outcomes that matter to the person.
Claire Craig is Reader in Design and Creative Practice in Health in the Art & Design Research Centre (ADRC) and Co-Director of the interdisciplinary research group Lab4Living. Claire’s research focuses on the role of creative practices in improving quality of life and well-being for people living with dementia.
