Sammanfattning

Different levels of user involvement in product design range from understanding user needs to co-designing with users. Previous research shows older patients face difficulties to handle the medication packaging. Yet the participation of older patients in pharmaceutical packaging design is underexplored. The purpose of this study is to explore the role of older patients in the design and development of pharmaceutical packaging. Two empirical examples of one drug manufacturer and one pharmaceutical packaging supplier build one case study. The findings reveal new pharmaceutical packaging development starts with market research about patients’ populations. The packaging development is led internally or with external partners. Later, patients test the packages concepts developed. These findings add to previous research about the involvement of users in industries with a high technology orientation. This study is aligned with the challenges of public healthcare and contributes with a conceptual framework of user involvement, a useful tool for managers and developers to further benchmark their design process.
