Co-designing for accessibility in eHealth services.

"In this seminar I will present parts of the ongoing research project where we co-design accessible eHealth services together with people with lived experience of disability. I will present a literature review about accessibility in eHealth services that is  in process. I will also talk about how we investigate if there are differences in compliance to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 and how accessibility is experienced by participants in a specific public eHealth service. The research is conducted with Participatory Action Research, Participatory Design and Value sensitive design where the performance of workshops is adapted with scaffolding. As many other research projects pandemic restrictions affected this research project and I will share some reflections about turning workshops into digital meetings.”

What are the Health Informatics Conversations?

HI Conversations - a seminar series about Health Informatics

The conversations are about research-oriented health informatics topics, i.e. – presenting a published article, your research area, a relevant theory or a method etc.  

The Health Informatics Conversations will be recurring the last Thursday (except for June and December) every month at 12.00 via Zoom and last for one hour. This hour includes 20 minutes of presentation and leaves the rest of the time for discussions, all in English.

If you are a PhD-student – this is a credit-bearing activity, as long as the topic is relevant for your research.
