Improve Multidisciplinary Team Meetings by Design
Feb 2016 - ongoing
A holistic and user-centered design approach to improve multidisciplinary team meetings by design.
Every week in the VUmc, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, pathologists and other specialist health professionals meet to discuss patients with brain tumours. This is called the multidisciplinary team meeting (MDM) and is the ultimate moment when these patients’ diagnoses and treatment plans are agreed. Effectiveness and a team spirit are therefore essential. The VUmc was interested in discovering how design and technology can help create conditions in which the various medical specialists can make optimum use of the multidisciplinary aspect of an MDM.
