Research

Currently as a postdoctoral research fellow, I work on a project entitled “Patient-centred pharmaceutical packaging design for enhanced life quality of older people”, sponsored by the Familjen Kamprads Stiftelse. The on-going project investigates the challenges faced by older patients that need to manage their treatment, and that handle a variety of different medication packages every day. The project aims to contribute to the change from product-oriented to patient-oriented design processes for packaging in the pharmaceutical and packaging industry. The expected results from the project are to contribute knowledge about how future pharmaceutical packaging can best be adapted to older patients. With this knowledge, this research plans to inspire the pharmaceutical and packaging industry to change their design processes so that they consider the user perspective from early stages of packaging development. Consequently, we can have medication packaging that is designed with a greater understanding of patient’s needs, leading to a better quality of life for the older people who are dependent on medication.
