Abstract

As Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF/E) practice in health care expands, there is growing recognition of the need to consider and design for patient work. Over the past several years HF/E practitioners and researchers have begun to formalize the theoretical foundations of a patient work approach. Methodologically, patient work approaches have required adaptations of existing HF/E and social science approaches as well as the development of new approaches. This panel will focus on current approaches of engaging patients in designing interventions in the multiple settings in which patient work is performed. Each panelist will introduce their work by discussing the health care challenge and how existing methods were adapted or new methods created to engage patients in the design of systems. The panelists will then interact with audience members to solicit current health care challenges and to brainstorm ways in which methods could be adapted or innovated to engage patients in addressing these challenges.
