Hello everyone, my first post here!
I'm trying to get find projects of Design Management/design processes within Healthcare that have been deployed in Europe over the years. Anyone familiar with this?
I am investigating the possibilites to get a workshop/ project going within this field in a nearby future here in Sweden.
Feel free to discuss this or give us tips in this discussion.

Also check out The Design Council for projects and case studies:
and NHS Institute - The National Health Service (NHS) using design to innovate:
The ebd approach, The ebd approach - Presentation Transcript, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement 2009, www.slideshare.net/whatidiscover/the-ebd-approach
My thesis is about Swedish healthcare and Service Design, if that sounds interesting or want more info and links, book tips about this subject, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am overwhelmed by the response to this post, over twitter and e-mail, m u c h appreciated. I will let you know how it evolves further. Keep on posting if you have more great examples!
