Practical course on ECG interpretation in the young and in athletes

Creative Problem Solving: Design Thinking in Health and Social Care

Design Thinking is a relatively new concept in healthcare. It is a human centred, highly visual, iterative methodology whereby assumptions are challenged and problems redefined, through divergent and convergent thinking.

At St George's, University of London we are developing a short 'crash course', targeted at healthcare workers, to teach them the principles of design thinking so that they can apply them to every day issues within the NHS - an important skill in a system that has limited resources and is required to make ever greater efficiencies. This is a unique opportunity specifically designed for those working within the NHS. These two days will provide you with the knowledge and skills to rethink and challenge your working environment and develop new problem-solving strategies. More information
