  • Not an introduction
  • Don’t need to reference in 
  • Teaser the reader to keep reading – big facts
  • Waiting rooms are already a stressful environment and don’t need to be more stressful
  • Don’t go over 500 words
  • Poster – iteration of last one, not just all research but also results and approach
  • Poster – environmental graphic design – auditory, senses for parents and their children, stressors in waiting room, annotated sketch up, how each thing affects the audience
  • App – feature set
  • Waiting Rooms relate to everyone, provokes comments and interest from most, relevant or can evoke a response from a huge range of audiences

Motivation

If the problem isn’t obviously “interesting” it might be better to put motivation first; but if your work is incremental progress on a problem that is widely recognised as important, then it is probably better to put the problem statement

  • Details of the arrangement of space 
  • Parents, children, nurses, admin staff, specifically
  • Pixar movies – for children but savvy for adults
  • Chairs for sleeping?

Waiting rooms are already a stressful environment and don’t need to be more stressful. Children need a distraction whilst waiting in an after hours clinic, parents need to feel relaxed

So that children and their families can have a more positive experience whilst waiting for care, to feel like they’re not wasting time or waiting for too long

Problem Statement:

Attempt 1:
The waiting room is being used as a containment space of inevitable frustration and impatience and parents and their families find it hard to stay occupied with a long waiting time.

Attempt 2:
Parents and their children find it hard to stay occupied with a long waiting time in an after hours clinic which affects in turn patient satisfaction

Attempt 3:
Parents and their children find it hard to stay occupied with a long waiting time in an after hours clinic which affects in turn patient satisfaction

Attempt 4: 
In an after hours clinic the uncertainty of waiting time is a stressful scenario, especially for parents and their children who may be in a painful state

Approach:

Thesis’ and other studies on how wait time correlates with patient satisfaction  
Interviews with Triage nurses, how the environment affects perception of wait time

  • If parents are happy they’re more likely to bring back their children to that place

Results: What is it? What does it communicate? How does it work?

Attempt 1:

  • An immersive and interaction toy/wall for children to distract them and keep them entertained whilst their parents may be in a painful state
  • Perception of medical care could increase
  • Music that they listen to, deathmetal 

Conclusions:

Assemble:
