Design Research for Health and Wellbeing (DRHW) is home to a cross-disciplinary network of researchers, creative practitioners, healthcare workers, and service users.

Drawing on this diverse knowledge base, DRHW fosters collaboration with a view to devising and implementing innovations that promote wellbeing.

An emphasis on design and design research in healthcare projects allows for the development and prototyping of objects, environments, systems and services. DRHW responds to the need for design thinking, using creative practice-based research methods to help care providers and care users better understand and communicate the lived experience of health care.

The creative practice-based research across diverse disciplines responds to a range of health issues like non-communicable disease management, preventative care, antibiotic resistance, and aging communities.
