Sudden Interruptions In Health
Our work in this theme is concerned with the experiences of those with sudden changes in their health status and the organisation of care to support them. We focus on those who require critical care and on older people considering issues of care in the acute phase. We concentrate on what happens to people as they recover, rehabilitate and survive these episodes of care such as the design and application of digital health products and services.
