How does your research relate to the Challenge?

We went to visit a private nursing home in Macau and had an interview with the centre manager.

Tell us about your research:

We had an interview with the Centre Manager. Attached is the empathy map which captured the interview.

What is an insight, question, or provocation that might inspire others during this challenge?

1) How might we inspire doctors to have closer communications with caregivers & family members? 2) How might we enable caregivers to share their wisdom and stories to each other & a bigger audience? 3) How might we raise awareness of the serious consequence of Osteoporosis, so people will take actions to build healthy bone?

Tell us about yourself

I am the Chapter Organizer for OpenIDEO Hong Kong Chapter. I have few friends' parents who live with osteoporosis and a fracture. I found this topic & research also benefit myself in raising my awareness on the importance of healthy bone that leads to healthy aging.

If you participated in a Research Event, tell us which Chapter or city you came from:
