Lab4Living influencing the health curriculum in Zurich

Dr. Claire Craig, Lab4Living returned to the Zhaw Institute for the eighth consecutive year. Here she lectured to third year occupational therapy students about the value of design in healthcare and of how this relates to the new and emerging roles that occupational therapists are developing in practice. Students had the opportunity to hear her describe some of the research Lab4Living has been undertaking around the role of occupational therapy, design interventions in supporting people living with long-term conditions.

A group of five Swiss students who had visited the Lab during the previous year spoke of the transformational nature the experience had in how they saw occupational therapy and the value of design in maximising participation.
