Design at the frontline of Emergency Medicine

Do you know what good design can do? Want to hear more from Design Champions and Scotland’s designers?

This year at XpoNorth we are introducing Design Room - a virtual space to hear about good design and its potential to improve our lives.

Design is not just about how things look: it’s about how everything works! Design touches everything from how we design, label and market a malt whisky to how our healthcare is delivered.

XpoNorth are working with a Design PROJECT for Scotland in their mission to highlight and broadcast great design initiatives across Scotland and beyond.

Join us in the Design Room for a lunch break with purpose! Learn something new and be inspired.

David Lowe and Don McIntyre present their leading edge work on design innovation in medicine and discuss how designer and partnership working is making healthcare and patient outcomes better.
