The Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) Executive team held a meeting at the DHI Maxim offices on the 19th January 2016. HIS had requested to find out more about the DHI and its innovation process, and to gauge collaboration opportunities with the DHI. The Research and Knowledge Exchange team (TD, SR, AW) prepared an interactive Exploratory/design workshop for the afternoon on topics identified as relevant by the HIS-team: Innovative solutions for frail people in the community and preventing admissions to the hospital. Members of the Project team and the Laboratory team assisted in preparing and running of the event. The preparations included planning the design of the workshop, interviewing a real-life patient for a case-study to be used in the workshop, and preparing the workshop materials (SR, AW).
