Spatial Analysis Techniques

“The utility of spatial and time-series analysis techniques are increasingly recognized in health research as a means to better understanding disease processes and health care system demands (Morris and Munasinghe, 1994; Carey et al., 2003; Dowell et al., 2003; Crighton et al., 2005).” (Extract from Crighton et al., 2008)

An example of Spatial Analysis Techniques: Crighton, E. J., Elliott, S. J., Kanaroglou, P., Moineddin, R., & Upshur, R. E. (2008). Spatio-temporal analysis of pneumonia and influenza hospitalizations in Ontario, Canada. Geospatial health, 191-202.

Co-Design Approach

The main purpose of the Co-Design Approach is to create a collaborative partnership with the people destined to use services or technologies. The notions of collaboration and engagement are at the heart of the co-design approach, and may be understood as the complex process that combines doing, talking, thinking, feeling, and sharing experience and knowledge (Grosjean et al., 2019). Various tools and techniques are developed to involve users in co-design dialogues (Sanders, Brandt & Binder, 2010). A methodological guide has been developed to support the preparation and animation of the co-design workshops with People living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and healthcare providers (HCPs). S.Grosjean and L.Bonneville have developed a guideline to help individuals from different countries who are willing to run the co-design workshops.
