Opportunity details

Designing medicines with the needs of the patient in mind

An opportunity for older people and their carers to discuss how to improve the design of medicines

Link to organisation:

Full description:

Tablets and capsules come in a range of shapes, colours and sizes, and we want to know how we can use these to make it as easy as possible for older people to take their medication. We’re looking for people aged 65 and above or their carers to talk about their experiences of using medicines and how they would like to see the characteristics improved. This will take up to an hour, depending on how much you have to say. We’ll use your recommendations to then make some tablet models.
