Speaker: Jeremy Davenport PhD, The Creative Exchange (Lancaster University)
Title: Exploring how to improve the presentation of blood test results for renal patients (patients as partners in the design of health care)

Jeremy Davenports’s research interests are focused upon inter disciplinary and cross sector collaboration across professional cultures and boundaries. Specifically, exploring the impact of emergent digital technologies on the creative economy in the design and delivery of product, service and experience. A central aspect of his research is to explore the opportunities and challenges for developing new and meaningful knowledge exchange policies and tools for curating, catalyzing and sustaining collaborations between creative practitioners, academic and corporate research, businesses and public organizations.

Jeremy’s professional career has encompassed roles in the public and private sectors, initially as an economist, programme manager and senior consultant (working internationally) prior to his latest role focused upon developing knowledge exchange policies and tools in support of the creative economy at both a University and national level. Beyond the PhD and Creative Exchange, his interests include photography, archaeology and hill walking.

In this presentation Jeremy reflects on his experience as a renal patient who has been working with his clinicians and interaction designers at Lancaster University to develop an app that better enables renal patients to understand their monthly blood results.
