I’ll be in Waterloo for DesignCampWaterloo on Thursday for World Usability Day. And there are events happening around the country, Qixing lists them on CanUX blog. There are events happening in Richmond, BC, Calgary, AB and here in Toronto.
The focus for World Usability Day 2007—November 8, 2007—is healthcare. Whether it’s new medical devices or technologies; drug research, approval, or delivery; patient forms or medical record sharing; emergency disaster planning; increasing the functionality of hospitals; or everyday healthcare delivery, EVERYONE is affected by usability in healthcare.
TorCHI will host a number of presentations featuring Canadian developments in Healthcare and Usability. Topics include:
- Web 2.0 & Healthcare
- Patient Safety Research, and
- Conversation with a Physician
This will also be a great opportunity to meet other professionals working in this area. Last year's World Usability Day event in Toronto attracted more than 200 attendees!
