Jane applied this design for the first time in a health science context in 2003 in her own PhD project and she is a pioneer both in the field of Health Technology and Participatory Design in Health Sciences. Since, she has supervised numerous projects – all with the outcome of a successful changed clinical practice by creating new ways of organizing healthcare services, changes of mindsets and new patients pathways.
