Date: 26 June 2017
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Website: Broadening Participation
Deadline for submissions: 1 April 2017

In conjunction with EICS’2017 conference.

This workshop focuses on engineering the next generation of healthcare technologies for broadening the participation of patients and carers in their healthcare. We will gather stakeholders from distinct disciplines and backgrounds to discuss and reflect on experiences to date with healthcare technologies that support participation. We will also engage in ideation and design sessions with real case studies from the Portuguese primary care reform.

The background for this workshop is that healthcare technologies are increasingly influencing the participation of patients and carers. As these technologies mediate medical interactions, examinations, and even self-care activities, they can enable or hinder patients and carers from participating in their healthcare. More than ever, it is timely to reflect on what healthcare technologies achieved so far, and to draft an agenda for broadening the participation of patients and carers.

See the complete workshop proposal for more information.

Prospective participants are invited to submit a 4-6 pages position paper using the SIGCHI Extended Abstract Format, or a <500 a="" be="" both="" for="" href="" letter="" motivation="" non-academics="" sent="" should="" submissions="" to:="" words="">
by April 1st 2017.
We expect position papers on healthcare technologies, including: recent experiments, prototypes, field studies, theoretical accounts, and critical reflections that discuss issues of design, development, and use. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Models, components, architectures, and infrastructures for enabling participation;
  • Participatory processes for designing and developing healthcare technologies;
  • Success (and failure) stories of technology-mediated participation in healthcare;
  • Challenges of participation in technology-mediated environments;
  • Appropriation of healthcare technologies by patients and carers; and
  • Healthcare technologies created by patients and carers.
