Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

SCOTCAP is a potential new NHS Scotland service for delivering video capsule endoscopy which would replace or complement existing colonoscopy services. A trial is currently being run in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland between NHS Highlands and Corporate Health. This report is the result of a single design workshop to look at the experience of those staff delivering the trial and future service and those patients that have taken part in the ongoing SCOTCAP trial. The material presented and discussed at the workshop resulted from a review of existing documentation on a potential video endoscopy service in Scotland. The workshop was attended by two GP's from rural practices who have trialled capsule endoscopy, two nursing staff (one from NHS Scotland and one from Corporate Health), two patients who have taken part in the trial and a further representative from Corporate Health. The workshop was run by researchers from the Innovation School at the Glasgow School of Art and is part of the work of the Digital Health and Care Institute.
