Blog Entry SPACE - Space and People, how the Atmosphere is Created by the Environment in paediatric ED
There is increasing evidence that the physical environment and feel of a place in healthcare settings have an effect on emotion and behaviour, as well as on well-being and recovery. A recent All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) highlighted significant opportunities for the creative industries to humanise care, enable patients to take a more active role in decision making, enhance the quality of the built environment, and improve staff and patient wellbeing, particularly in areas such as mental health, dementia and elderly care. Less work has focused on the urgent assessment space i.e. the process of arriving in a hospital setting seeking medical review, and how place and space influence the experience of care as well as the process of diagnosis and decision making in acute illness.

Blog Entry Red flags and symptom checkers for self-diagnosis in maternity
Perinatal morbidity and mortality are significant global public health issues. Traditionally, health communication methods to inform women about ‘red flags’ and early warning signs of perinatal complications and appropriate help seeking in pregnancy included face-to-face education, pamphlets, audio-visual training and mass media campaigns. Increasingly, there is recognition of the important role of online pregnancy resources. Websites and pregnancy apps are an integral source of information for many pregnant women, particularly in high-income countries. However, we know little about who uses these resources, and differences in types of resource used and how these digital resources ‘work’ to help women distinguish between normal pregnancy-related changes and what could be a sign of a complication.
