Research around design of healthcare spaces for people with sensory conditions (including ASD)

larag Community member Posts: 5 Listener

Hi all. I am a Master’s student at University College London, and I am conducting research into how people with sensory conditions experience therapeutic spaces for cancer patients. I am looking for participants who identify as having visual impairments, hearing impairments or autism/ASD to complete an online survey. The survey involves looking at some photos and sharing your thoughts on them. It should take no more than 15 minutes, and participation is completely anonymous.

This research is built around the fact that the design of clinical and non-clinical healthcare spaces can have a profound impact on how cancer patients and their friends/family feel during this stressful and turbulent time. The goal of my research is to better understand how these non-clinical spaces, which provide a comforting break from the hospital environment, can truly accommodate all types of users - particularly those whose experience of a space is altered by their sensory conditions.

I would really appreciate your help, so if you have some spare time please consider completing the survey, which can be found here: 

​Thank you!
