RMIT University’s Health Transformation Lab operates at the intersection of design, health and innovation to solve some of healthcare’s thorniest challenges. 2020 saw challenges for those in the healthcare sector grow in complexity and scale. How will healthcare need to change? Is there a role for design to be part of the change? 

The lab’s Open Labs Online x Melbourne Design Week Edition ‘Design & health: Beyond the status quo’ will highlight the work of designers who are forging interesting and unexpected collaborations with the healthcare sector, to offer to the design community provocations for new ways of working in health.

Please note that this is a virtual event and the Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the event day.
