    Abstract

    Language of Pain is a collaborative research project between The Glasgow School of Art/Digital Health and Care Institute and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The project adopted a design research approach to explore the experiences of people living with chronic pain and health professionals delivering care through a series of design workshops and interviews. Research methods used included visual mapping; prototyping and storytelling. The aim of this research project is to collaboratively develop insights and user requirements that support the design of an innovative assessment tool to support equal and open dialogue; promote shared ownership and understanding; and attempts to address the imbalance between the health professional and the patient through experiential learning and engagement.
