Description: The aim of this workshop is to introduce participants to the idea of human-centred design. Participants will discuss and try different human-centred design methods; co-design solutions to identify what works, what doesn't, what needs to change and why; and plan not only the tool but also its implementation plan.

Participants will work in groups of three to five people, applying the aforementioned concepts in a variety of ways. This will allow participants to understand the value of human-centred design when developing and refining knowledge translation tools and strategies.
