Attending: Applied service design techniques

Country: Norway
Areas of expertise: User research, scientific research, health promotion, health sector, public health

Background is in the health sector with a master degree in public health. After the master degree I’ve been working with scientific research at Norwegian Institute of Public health and at Oslo University Hospital (OUS), and I have good experience working with projects.

At my current workplace we develop web-based tools that can help patients and other users to improve their self-management and the collaboration with health personnel, and I work as a researcher and project assistant. I believe the use of service design techniques within the health sector can be be a very important contribution to improve the public health in different kind of ways.

Since I have no experience with service design, I’m really looking forward to learn more about this field and the different techniques at the summer course.
